What we're about
What is Code for Canada?
Code for Canada (http://community.codeforcanada.org/) was inspired by Code for America (https://www.codeforamerica.org/)'s Code for All (http://codeforall.org/about/) movement. We're group of Canucks from Vancouver to Toronto who believe that digital technology opens new channels for citizens to more meaningfully engage in the public sphere and have a positive impact on their communities in Canada.
We want to enlist and support the public to create digital resources, tools and practices that result in stronger local communities and more responsive and effective governments.
Join us and help us to solve local civic problems through technology. Whether you come with a project or idea or just ready to jump in, we’re glad you are coding for Canada!
This is the Vancouver chapter of Code for Canada.
Who should join?
Anyone interested in working on tech projects for Open Government, Open Source, and Civic Engagement. Designers, Developers, Artists, Marketers, Community Organizers, etc...
What can you expect of the group, and what we expect of you?
We plan on organizing a community to work on projects together, hackathons and and just meet other like minded individuals.
