Data for Good



Bright minds building a better future. In 2012 an idea was born to engender social change in Canada through the limitless potential of one of our most valuable commodities: data. To that end, and modeled after the success of its US partner, DataKind, Data for Good was born through the vision of founders Joy Robson and Victor Anjos. Today, Data for Good and its passionate team of data scientists and programmers have grown to include four chapters across Canada.

At our core, we exist at the intersections of social justice and science, computer code and philanthropy, data-driven insights and real-world results. We empower local charities to solve operational challenges, become more efficient and thrive using the untapped wellspring of information at their fingertips. To put it simply, Data for Good is a gathering of bright minds building a better future.
