A Powerful Partnership

We’ve teamed with Microsoft to supercharge the Most Valuable Network. Watch the video to see how we’re working together to find our Nation’s missing children.

Microsoft Build 2017 Hackathon

MCSC is proud to partner with Microsoft Canada to support our Most Valuable Network (MVN). The MVN system was completely overhauled and moved onto Microsoft’s cloud, Azure, to ensure scalability of the program and allow MCSC the capacity to involve all Canadians in the program.

The re-build project with Microsoft Canada caught the attention of the Microsoft Global team and they wanted to look at how they could support MCSC further through their #CloudForGood campaign. In October 2016, Microsoft Canada held a “Hackathon” event with MCSC, Calgary Police Service, and the City of Calgary. This hack event aimed to use technology to enhance the safety of the large number of vulnerable youth reported missing each year.
