We’re travelling across the country to bring hands-on, interactive technology education to youth and adults across Canada. It is our mission to ensure that all Canadians — particularly women and youth — have access to these learning opportunities.

Our Learning Experiences

At Canada Learning Code, we envision a prosperous Canada in which all people have the knowledge and confidence to harness the power of technology to achieve economic and personal fulfillment.

To support this vision, the Code Mobile offers engaging, beginner-friendly, hands-on experiences  that equip youth, teens, teachers, and adults with a range of coding and computational skills, delivered in a social and collaborative way.

Our team partners with local and national organizations to ensure that our programs  are delivered to learners for whom these experiences are inaccessible, and communities that are traditionally underrepresented in the tech sector.
