Nathan Vreyborg started Nation Innovation in 2017 his mission was to empower first nation people with the latest technology training available.

“Honour and respect are the currency of Indigenous business.”

Over the years Nation Innovation has served the computer training needs of thousands of individuals seeking to improve their job skills and gain access to new career opportunities. We have helped students have better access to the broader world through the internet and social media training. We have even helped grandparents stay connected to loved ones far away by giving them the needed training and confidence to go online.

It has been our privilege and honor to serve Indigenous communities with their computer training needs, now we are expanding to offer advanced job readiness programs to adults and our youth.

Please visit our “Services” page for more details as to how you and your community can benefit from our training programs.


Nation Innovation has been helping Indigenous communities to take advantage of the latest innovations in computer technology and services. Our goal is to improve computer literacy with the aim of improving career prospects and job readiness.
