Colibri Software was created in Wolfville, Nova Scotia in 2010 to fulfill the growing need for innovative software in rural communities. We work on projects that accelerate the growth of rural communities and economies through the use of our powerful and user friendly software.
We are comprised of seven Nova Scotia university graduates and John Read, who is the owner and founder. John founded the company in order to open up the space of complex and cutting edge technology to people in rural communities. The company prides itself on repeatedly using only the most powerful, open source, and user friendly technology in its projects. The company is named after the hummingbird, as many of the world’s languages called the bird Colibri. The name enhances the core value of Colibri Software, which is the idea of creating extremely powerful software, while remaining agile at our core.
We build our products on powerful and open source platforms and combine that base with light and crisp user interfaces to ensure maximum usability. Colibri Software aims to produce incredibly user friendly applications that help to expand communities. We believe that educating people on the tools available to them is beneficial to themselves and their communities, therefore we aim to create products for people while at the same time, and help the customer become fluent in the software. We care deeply about helping to grow rural communities not only with technology, but also in the economic realm and believe that education is the key to this.Read Interview

TIDAL ENERGY INSTITUTE
The Acadia Tidal Energy Institute (ATEI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating research, education, and outreach to ensure responsible and sustainable development of the tidal energy industry.
The work of the Institute will be driven by new and existing internal and external, cross-disciplinary clusters of experts in:
- energy resource modeling;
- marine ecology;
- sustainable environments and communities;
Multidisciplinary research projects and other collaborative initiatives address knowledge gaps associated with the emerging tidal energy industry. Collaboration of faculty and students with government, industry, non-governmental organizations, communities and other academic institutions will enhance capacity building and understanding of the available tidal energy resources, environmental effects of tidal energy development, and the socio-economic opportunities, particularly in local rural communities.
“Rural Canada feeds our nation literally, economically, and environmentally. It provides the food, fibre, minerals, water and other bio-resources and natural resources on which our country depends and the arteries of transportation by which they are delivered. Digital technologies and data analytics have the power to shape how we work with these resources and their impact on our local communities and our planet.”Read Interview
