WHAT’S THE IDEA?

WE’RE ADDRESSING AN UNFORTUNATELY CANADIAN PROBLEM.

Connect Vancouver is a student-led non-profit organization that provides smartphones and smartphone bill support to Vancouver's homeless and at-risk community. We collaborate with local and national organizations to connect Vancouver’s most vulnerable with the support they need. We believe that by making phones and cellular data unaffordable in Canada, we are accepting that an entire group of Canadians be cut off from the forefront of technological innovation. Some of Vancouver’s most marginalized are left behind by the technological age and we want to address this.
