HelpSeeker Technologies is a social technology B-Corp founded in 2018 in Calgary.

We have quickly grown into a team of more than 50 members who develop and service a suite of data-driven digital solutions to support social sector decision-makers, service providers, and community members looking for help.

Our Core Values

Purpose-driven growth

We focus our business growth on advancing our social mission.

We build with urgency and with the long game in sight.

We consider our role in social change a privilege. 

Intentional action on reconciliation, inclusion, diversity, equity & sovereignty

To combat discrimination and decolonize entrenched systems of power linked to the social safety net, we work to intentionally embed Truth and Reconciliation in our work as we operate on Indigenous lands.

Our diversity is our edge

The different perspectives, experiences, cultures, identities, skills, and knowledge each of us brings to the team make us strong. We walk the talk on equity, Reconciliation, and inclusion across our teams.

Integrity drives our innovation

We lead by example and behave with the highest levels of integrity. We speak up in the best interests of our mission and core values, even when that is hard. Nothing is set in stone: better ideas that drive our purpose always win.

We seek balance in all we do

While we are constantly challenged, we actively work on our personal and company wellbeing and support each other’s efforts to balance the demands of working in a startup environment.

Purpose-driven growth

We focus our business growth on advancing our social mission.

We build with urgency and with the long game in sight.

We consider our role in social change a privilege.

We own our mistakes as these are foundational to our growth together and individually.

Using business as a force for good, we maximize social and economic returns as part of a global movement.

Intentional action on reconciliation, inclusion, diversity, equity & sovereignty

To combat discrimination and decolonize entrenched systems of power linked to the social safety net, we work to intentionally embed Truth and Reconciliation in our work as we operate on Indigenous lands.

HelpSeeker has made a firm commitment to developing a company culture that supports diverse perspectives and balances the need for growth while maintaining core values and ethics,  and our commitment to being a social enterprise.

We want our work to be a vehicle for action on Reconciliation, inclusion, diversity, equity, and sovereignty, with a lens on Indigenous, Black, and racialized people, LGBTQ2S+ people, women, and others who have been marginalized.

Our diversity is our edge

The different perspectives, experiences, cultures, identities, skills, and knowledge each of us brings to the team make us strong. We walk the talk on equity, Reconciliation, and inclusion across our teams.

We intervene to challenge racism, oppression, and marginalization. This is what drives us, and thus drives our mission.

Integrity drives our innovation​

We lead by example and behave with the highest levels of integrity. We speak up in the best interests of our mission and core values, even when that is hard. Nothing is set in stone: better ideas that drive our purpose always win.

We are bold in imagining a better future and mindful in our actions to get us there as quickly as possible.

We seek balance in all we do

While we are constantly challenged, we actively work on our personal and company wellbeing and support each other’s efforts to balance the demands of working in a startup environment.

We drive innovation and agility—but not at the expense of good work. We believe that our best work happens at intersections of people, teams, cultures, and disciplines, as these intersections drive creativity. This is sustainable only through a balanced approach.
