GRIT Toronto

Putting the “us” in usability

GRIT Toronto offers a usability testing service which connects technology creators from the private, public and nonprofit sectors with diverse and underrepresented communities in the city.

Technology is changing our cities like never before, but too often that technology is conceived, designed, and tested in a way that excludes broad swaths of society.

Inspired by successful initiatives in Chicago and New York, Code for Canada is launching GRIT (Gathering Residents to Improve Technology) Toronto. The program will facilitate better, more inclusive and accessible usability testing that engages residents — and pays them! — to help shape technology that’s meant to serve them.
