Instilling data collection practices with integrity and freedom



The Human Data Commons Foundation (HDC) is a non-profit based in Vancouver, Canada that works to make data collection more salient, ethical and beneficial to the well-being of humanity.

HDC does this by fostering and facilitating interdisciplinary, inclusive stakeholder discussion about how to shape ethics and protocols for big data.

Our actions include:

  • creating awareness through education
  • generating ideas for change
  • advocating for higher industry standards
  • supporting seed projects

We envision a world where the big data playing field is level for everyone.
