About Us

TIMBY is a Montreal-based company that creates technology help workers, communities and other groups on the frontlines of issues (supply chains, environmental, corruption, transparency, human rights issues) connect with impact at the 10,000 ft level.

Specifically, we work on a reporting app, investigation dashboard, grievance mechanism and content-creation tool that makes it easier for groups and individuals to both access crucial global data that helps them understand their rights (documents, maps, contracts) and also report issues for impact. We also connect these individuals to pathways for justice.

We are funded by earned revenue from partner institutions and by philanthropic supporters, including the Ford Foundation, HIVOS Foundation, DFID and Omidyar.

We are a small but powerful team, united in the belief that we can create a more just world. The culture around us is changing rapidly and the demand for TIMBY has never been greater. We have expanded beyond our initial work in the land and forestry sector in Africa to address workers rights issues, human rights issues, and accountability issues in multiple industries. Right now TIMBY operates in 13 languages in 25 countries around the world.
