Connected Canadians was founded in 2018. Co-founders and women in technology Emily Jones Joanisse and Tas Damen have spent countless hours helping older adults in their network develop their digital literacy skills. However, both Tas and Emily felt that despite their best efforts, they were not able to reach as many people as they wished.  As such, they decided to join forces  to create an organization that would provide a more scalable and sustainable solution.

We believe that all people should be empowered to use technology safely and effectively, to engage with loved ones and enhance quality of life.
