Celebrating a strong, creative, resilient Lunenburg County
NOW, MORE THAN EVER...
BY HEATHER MACKENZIE-CAREY
Barry Stevens, the founder of Stevens Solutions and Design
(SS&D) a proudly Indigenous Company, has a secret he’s willing
As a determined kid making money managing a trap line,
working in a mill, and providing farm labor, Barry learned the
art of self-reliance in Lunenburg County. With a passion for
electronics and technology design, Barry braved the culture
shock of Toronto fresh out of high school and trained as an
Engineering Technologist. He became a specialist in a small
niche market offering technology solutions to clients across
North America and beyond.
The return home was a conscious decision. Barry portrays a sense
of awe when he describes how one doesn’t have to be wealthy to
live a lifestyle rich in free recreational pursuits all within a short
drive. Having traveled all over the world, Barry realizes what
long-term residents of Lunenburg County may take for granted.
You can kayak to remote islands, spend the afternoon on a
sailboat, be an hour’s drive or less from critical core industries,
and be a big player in the global marketplace.
Stevens Solutions and Design has grown into a family business
supporting three highly skilled people and two generations.
