DisasterTech Hackathon

October 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - October 15, 2017 @ 5:30 pm

Create technology solutions to help mitigate the impact of disasters on urban communities!

Recent catastrophes like the Windsor floods and British Columbia wildfires are just two examples that highlight the challenges metropolitans face.

To minimize the impacts these disasters will have on our personal property and well-being, Canadians will need to come together and think big.

Are you up for the challenge?

Register today to join developers, designers, emergency preparedness experts, lawyers, front-line workers, insurance professionals and more to develop your DisasterTech solution!

Three winning teams will be awarded with a total of $7,000 in prize money.

All teams will have access to incredible data sets provided by Hackathon partners including The City of Toronto, The Weather Company, Aviva Canada, The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, The Canadian Red Cross and Toronto Hydro.


This hackathon will focus on challenges related to disaster planning and preparation as well as challenges related to communication during a disaster. We look forward to announcing the challenges on October 13!
