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.

Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

To make our community a place where everyone has access to technology and where electronic waste is disposed of responsibly, safely, and ethically.
