Change from the bottom up
Civic tech communities are at the heart of what we do. They bring policymakers, technologists, designers, public servants and engaged residents together to learn from one another and make their communities better places to live. We support the creation and growth of grassroots civic tech community groups across Canada with resources and expertise.
How we do it:
We amplify the impact of existing community groups
We broadcast local civic tech success stories and help local groups connect to share the knowledge and expertise they need to make an impact in their communities.
We help mobilize civic tech community organizations
Are you running or starting a civic tech group in your community? We’ll set you up with the guidance, resources and relationships you need.
We look beyond our borders
We’re inspired by the impacts that engaged residents are having in their communities all around the world. We’ll be collecting and sharing stories and resources from grassroots civic tech groups across the globe, from Philadelphia to Pakistan and everywhere in between.

We’re leading a nationwide movement, and we want you to be part of it.
