PeaceGeeks is a non-profit that builds digital tools to strengthen communities in the pursuit of peace. But our latest projects aren’t simply about technology—they’re about connecting and amplifying local voices to drive sustainable social change.
“We all come to Canada with the hopes of success and a stable life. I was honestly overwhelmed by the amount of work I had to do just to start living outside the support system. PeaceGeeks helps make the experience of settling into your new community so much better.”
Migrated to Canada in February 2017
1 in 3 newcomers are unaware of support services
According to the latest Vancouver Immigrant Survey, newcomers have trouble locating services for their health and wellness (38%), finding a job (38%), and to improve their language skills (37%). PeaceGeeks is helping make these settlement services more accessible with the free mobile app, Arrival Advisor.
