Helping you be a force for good online.
As a B Corp, we are in business as a force for good. Social benefit is at our core. We love nothing more than to understand the change you would like to see, how you are trying to do it, and then come up with a plan to make you effective online.
Take a look at our portfolio to see what we have done for others.
We really don't like saying "it can't be done". We learn new technologies, find software that can be integrated with your website, or work with you to modify internal processes. Our village approach brings an experienced team to the table to create solutions that reflect who you are.
Contact us, and we are happy to chat.
We understand that you are busy, and what you want is someone to take care of your online needs -- whether you need to update a website, create software or reach more people through SEO or social media. Or if you just need some help understanding how something works.
We are there for you.
We provide a full range of website development services, from strategy consultation to design, content creation, migration, hosting, SEO and support. We'll also integrate your site with the right tools for a wide variety of functions, like running an online store. We'll even manage your social media to extend your reach. See our website services and our portfolio.

My website is not a burden anymore. It's taken away that administrative stress of having to do something that I'm not equipped to do. The process of designing the site was very collaborative. We met and had conversations, and he really looked into who I am and what I'm trying to achieve. That part of the process can take a long time if the person you're working with doesn't take the time to understand you. He knew the right questions to ask so we got to a format and design very quickly.

We are a small business who were looking to make our website current and accessible. We chose Northern Village to help update our site as they came highly recommended from other satisfied clientele. We were not disappointed!
When you work with Northern Village you get the sense they are committed to their business, which makes us confident that they will be around to support us when our website needs updating/changing in future years.

Northern Village was invaluable to us. No one at the Society is overly ‘tech savvy’. I would be better characterized as ‘tech challenged’. We needed to be led by the hand through software selection, website design and content loading. Northern Village bent over backwards to help us out. They completed the work on time and on budget. We have received many compliments on the new website and experienced a noticeable spike in new members following the launch of the website.
The Stanley Thompson Society can’t thank Arni and team enough for their tremendous help and patience. I would enthusiastically recommend Northern Village to any organization with similar needs.

NV made our website painless. It looks good and functions well. The value proposition is great service, cost effective, and a good turn around.
We had to all of a sudden move an existing webpage to get Google search results working. Over the course of a weekend NV took time out to work with me on it so that by Monday morning everything was working perfectly. It was above and beyond. When we created the site, they sat down with me and mined my knowledge of what I really wanted. They really put heart and soul into the design, they understood me, and the results were seamless.
We moved to home delivery during the Covid-19 pandemic, and NV was very quick in helping us to ensure that everything was up and running, figuring out shipping and other needs. It’s great to have a person to call directly when we need something custom. We’re very satisfied with the customer service.
Arni has put his heart and soul into the company. As a long time Chamber member, I have been happy to refer him to other members and have received positive feedback from them. He's easy to talk to and always responsive. He’s also into continuous improvement and certifications. He’s managed a good business in a competitive market for many years.

Northern village is our go-to for migrating or setting up a website quickly and enabling the owners, users or staff to easily, actively manage the content.
The value add for me is that I don't have to worry about the website. It's a turn key solution. NV handles all the updates and patches, and the domain hosting, and makes sure everything's working. The owner has a breadth of knowledge so he can provide broad strokes and specific details to address whatever need I have. It's a one stop shop.
They listened to us and gave us suggestions about what the site should look like. Then they were very responsive to our suggestions. I felt like they heard and understood what we needed, and gave us what we were asking for.
We needed something quite unusual and were having difficulty getting all the parts to function. We needed a custom calculator to work out pricing and unusual currency conversions. Arni had to be fairly creative in the way he used what was available through Shopify to come up with what we needed. It was a challenge but he made it work. Being able to figure things out is a selling point, and he responds to requests in a timely way, so customer service is excellent
