LinkYEG – Completed

Linkyeg.ca is an Edmonton, mobile-optimized website that connects homeless and low-income residents with critical and life-saving resources nearby. Set up for and updated at the EPL (Edmonton Public Library) Open Data hackathon, linkyeg.ca is a fork from the Link-SF project, with the original source code and details available at Github (or the updated code for linkyeg.ca). Maintenance and updating of the site is now under the governance of the Canadian Mental Health Association.
