IT support | website and database development

We leave a big footprint

Clown Shoe

Since 1995, Rowland & Associates has been providing computer and network support, website and database development to government, non-profit, small business and individual clients. We began as a computer training establishment, offering some of Ottawa’s first instruction in website design, as well as courses in electronic publishing and computer support. Our students at the time were funded by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, Ontario Disability Support Program, Ontario Works, and private insurance companies.

We cultivate long-term relationships with clients, using a generalist approach without compromising quality. We work with clients and vendors to determine cost-effective solutions, incorporating open-source software where appropriate.

Gord Rowland has worked in IT since 1993. He has a reputation as an excellent troubleshooter with a thorough understanding of how computers should enhance productivity. Prior to lauching this company in 1995, he delivered federally funded training for YMCA-YWCA Employment Services, taught for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, and worked as a freelance musician. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottawa, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Windsor, and is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers.

Danielle Lépine has worked in government communications bureaus since 1980, first in Industry Canada, and concluding her public service career with the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade in 2012. She is adept at meeting tight deadlines, and has infinite patience when dealing with revisions. A fluently bilingual generalist, she is equally comfortable doing page layout, interactive PDF development, HTML conversion, or photography. During her federal government career, she established herself as an expert on the Federal Identity Program and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Danielle is always learning new software, and enjoys the challenge of any project, large or small.
