We’re excited to announce PrideHacks 2021 - our second year as a virtual hackathon happening August 5-7!

What is PrideHacks?

PrideHacks is our annual hackathon bringing together people from Canada’s tech ecosystem to design, build and implement technology solutions for nonprofit organizations that serve the LGBTQ2S+ community across Canada.

This year, more than ever, the organizations serving our most vulnerable communities need our help.

As a participant, you will use your skill set to help a broad range of impactful nonprofits solve their technology challenges all while getting to know other tech professionals and our partner companies. What’s better than doing good while having fun!

PrideHacks is an inclusive environment - We welcome all genders, sexual identities, abilities... everyone! Whether you are a LGBTQ2S+ or an Ally, we welcome you to come, design, code, build, and implement solutions that will have lasting impact for these organizations.
