Canary and Baidam partner for Indigenous mentoring and tech

Oct 26, 2022

During the National Indigenous Business month of October, two sovereign Australian ICT companies announce a partnership that that will provide opportunities for Indigenous people alongside expanded technology offerings.

Baidam Solutions, a Supply Nation certified Indigenous ICT security consultancy and Canary IT, a National Managed Services Provider team up to expand technical offerings.

Canary IT Co-Founder and CEO Mr. Steve Parsonage said “The decision to partner with Baidam Solutions was an easy one to make given we have just launched our first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Committing to a Reflect RAP means scoping and developing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, deciding on our vision for reconciliation and exploring our sphere of influence. Doing that with Baidam Solutions in a meaningful way is exciting for us, as we get to work with the 2022 Supply Nation Young Indigenous Entrepreneur for Australia, and Co-Founder of Baidam Solutions, Mr. Jack Reis.”

Canary IT is a 25-year-old Australian managed services provider with over 250 customers nationally and provides a range of IT services and solutions from the desktop to the datacenter. Canary IT specialise in cloud and data, cyber security and retail solutions. As part of the agreement, Indigenous ICT aspirants will be mentored by both organisations in a structured and outcome focused manner, for stable long term employment opportunities in the ICT sector.

“Greater collaboration and support between organisations to strengthen our customers and to protect our customers data is needed now more than ever” Jack Reis said “I am only as good as the team I represent, and I know that by having Canary IT in our corner, we can provide a wider range of quality services to our customer base.”

Pip Jenkinson, Co-Founder of Baidam Solutions stated “Baidam Solutions is an award-winning business and corporate social responsibility has been imbedded in our company’s DNA from day 1- it’s not an afterthought. It’s everything we as an organisation stand for and we are very happy to be working with the team over at Canary IT. Through this partnership we will be able to give Indigenous students a wider range of employment options to pursue a digital career in a rapidly expanding market.”

Both organisations acknowledge that this mutually beneficial agreement will allow for knowledge transfer across the two teams as well as being a valuable benefit to both the public and private sectors.
