Free Geek Toronto’s History
Free Geek Toronto launched in 2009 in the Junction as a completely volunteer-run, non-profit organization. In 2011, we began running our operations as a not-for-profit employment social enterprise. In 2014, our offices moved to the heart of West Queen West, where we continue to operate today.
As a not-for-profit employment social enterprise, we:
- Proactively seek out electronic waste donations, refurbish computers, and re-sell them at accessible prices alongside other reusable technology.
- Believe in the value of a circular economy and the right to repair, using Free and Open Source Software.
- Ethically recycle items only when they cannot be reused or refurbished.
To make our community a place where everyone has access to technology and where electronic waste is disposed of responsibly, safely, and ethically.
