September 2012 E-bulletin

September 2012

Welcome to this month’s COCo ebulletin!

As fall kicks in and we gear up for another season of building and sustaining our community groups and organizations, we’re thinking about what our work would like if our technological capacity were a little more, shall we say, robust. In this issue of our ebulletin we explore initiatives that are working on just that, including our recently launched pilot project, Commun-IT. We are also in the midst of a website transition, so any posting submissions to our upcoming ebulletins should be emailed to (rather than submitted online) until we’re live and running. What’s your group’s experience with information technology? Let us know what you think!

COCo Note

Community Groups and the Digital Divide

by Spencer and the COCo team

There is a growing gap between the limited tech capacity of many community groups and the general expectation that every group should have a website, an email newsletter, a facebook page, a twitter account, a YouTube channel, etc. An ever-increasing proportion of the world’s communication is happening on the web and many community groups are getting left out of the conversation.


When we hear these kinds of statements we often respond quickly and defensively: “What about the 20% of Canadians that don’t have internet access?” “What about the limitations of web-based activism and organizing?” We have an intuitive sense that all of the digital fervor needs to be balanced with some old-fashioned community organizing, but the defensiveness that often accompanies these critiques reveals that many of us feel insecure about technology. Most of our community groups lack the tech knowledge, skills, experience, and infrastructure that we need. We are operating on a digital shoestring and we know it.


In an effort to respond to these needs, COCo has launched “Commun-IT”, a pilot project to help community groups take advantage of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). You can learn a lot more on the Commun-IT website: You can also call “Commun-IT” for support and guidance with your groups technical struggles: (438) 808-0636.


Tell us about the tech needs of your community group! Please take 10 minutes and fill out a quick web survey:…. And don’t forget to take advantage of our affordable sliding scale fees for web development, communications planning, email newsletters, social media, web video production, and more.


We kicked-off the launch of Commun-IT with an offer to build a free website for 3 community groups. A bunch of groups applied and we selected 3 groups that had the greatest needs and the fewest resources. We are excited that Commun-IT will be building free websites for Casa El Salvador, The Afghan Women’s Centre Catering Project, and the Table du quartier. Click here to learn more:…


Through Commun-IT, COCo has begun to tap into a network of other organizations focused on the ICT needs of community groups. We’ve been in dialogue with TechSoup Canada (, Platformation (, CDEACF (, Communautique (, la Puce ( We’re also excited to collaborate with community-minded tech professionals in Quebec so please direct them our way!


If you have other ideas for Commun-IT please get in touch. We know we are just scratching the surface so far and we’re excited to dig deeper into the potential of technology and community organizing.

The Big Picture

A few of our favourite non-profit community tech things…

Commun-IT is just a young, local pilot project, but there are some BIG players in the realm of non-profit/community tech and a lot of them are doing excellent work.


TechSoup Canada ( is the Canadian partner of TechSoup Global ( Many nonprofits and social benefit organizations worldwide serve the needs of low-income, underserved populations and create positive social change. We believe these organizations could have even greater impact through the appropriate use of technology. This requires assistance with obtaining, using, and sustaining technology.


Idealware ( provides thoroughly researched, impartial and accessible resources about software to help nonprofits make smart software decisions. Nonprofits maintain a complicated relationship with technology. Most know that software can streamline their processes and help fulfill their missions more efficiently and effectively, yet lean staffing and tight budgets mean they’re unable to devote the time necessary keep up with new technologies and find the right tools.

NTEN – the Nonprofit Technology Network: NTEN ( facilitates the exchange of knowledge and information within our community. We connect our members to each other, provide professional development opportunities, educate our constituency on issues of technology use in nonprofits, and spearhead groundbreaking research, advocacy, and education on technology issues affecting our entire community.

Close Up

TechSoup Canada Camp

This fall, TechSoup Canada is inviting community groups and community-minded tech and communications professionals to a one day “camp” to discuss how to spread “Net Tuesdays” beyond Toronto into places like Montréal! Net Tuesday’s are regular monthly gatherings to discuss how technology can help non-profits/community groups in areas such as websites, data visualization, CRMs, social media, digital storytelling, cloud computing and more.

TechSoup Canada is organizing the camp to:

  1. create a space for peer-to-peer learning and sharing of experiences
  2. share ideas and spark ongoing collaboration
  3. welcome & hear from like-minded people outside of Toronto (maybe you or people you know?)
