About Us

History of Silvacom

Silvacom is a 100% employee-owned, Canadian natural resource management company established in Edmonton in 1983. Our founding partners, Tom Grabowski and Bob Morton are both graduates of the University of Alberta.

During our early years, we focused on consulting services for government and research operations and the innovative application of ruggedized hand-held computers for field data collection. Growing into the industrial market, we pioneered the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), advanced database technologies, mobile computing and analytics for resource inventories, management, mapping and land base planning.

History of Silvacom

As we grew, it became evident that one of our core strengths was related to a passion and ability to manage big data sets containing complex geospatial information. In 2002, we trademarked the phrase “Data is our core business™”.

Today, we provide professional services to private and public sector organizations across North America. Governed by an external Board of Directors, we focus on helping our clients find the balance between social, environmental and economic challenges resulting in better outcomes for all.

Our growing list of long-term clients appreciates that we can provide a comprehensive suite of natural resource management-related services all under one roof. We pride ourselves on building meaningful, trusting and long-lasting relationships with our clients.
