8 UNIFICATION Social Information Management Applications Unification- a web site database Unification Unification, developed by the Sto:lo Nation, is an application developed to manage social information. It can be web-based or stand-alone and enables users to manage case files in the social program, from intake to producing a cheque. Reports are generated electronically from data collection in the application, reducing the reporting burden to funders and improving compliance. First nations using Unification have a better understanding of how well their programs are working. FNTC is hoping to acquire Unification for use by First Nations in British Columbia. 08/02/20118
