We're absolutely honoured to say that PeaceGeeks placed in the top 5 and won $750K in this year's Google.org Impact Challenge!

We couldn't have done this without the support of you, our partners and the community and we are so excited for what this means! Our winning project, Services Advisor Pathways, is about leveraging tech to empower newcomers in and on their way to Canada, so they can find the most relevant information for their particular needs. Together, we can strengthen immigrant and refugee experiences in Canadian communities. We can't wait to get started. Great things to come soon!

Connecting newcomers  to the right services, 
at the right time

Services Advisor Pathways bridges current gaps in accessing timely, meaningful and relevant information for immigrants and refugees. Designed alongside immigrants, refugees, community service providers and coordinating organizations, this platform helps newcomers to more effectively navigate their resettlement experience before and after arriving in Canada by connecting them to a self-managed portfolio of the most relevant services for their particular needs. Services Advisor Pathways will be piloted in Metro Vancouver in consultation with local immigrants and service providers with the eventual goal of making it scalable across BC and Canada.

153,000 new immigrants

currently live in Metro Vancouver. It is also home to Canada’s second largest and growing immigrant population.

 

Access to information

for newcomers was identified by 7 municipal districts across Metro Vancouver as a top barrier for immigrant resettlement in 2016.

At home and abroad

we help 655,000 refugees in Jordan to get better access to information on services and will soon also support 3m+ more refugees in Somalia and Turkey.

Just like Services Advisor is about building partnerships between newcomers and their communities, PeaceGeeks wouldn’t be able to do the work we do without drawing on the power of our partners.
