Bridging the gap between underserved communities and technology
How We Work
Tech + Community
Oxus Machine Works Ltd. (OMW) is a health technology firm specializing in innovations that respond to the needs of diverse populations. We aim to advance equity in communities through the development of technological innovations targeting gaps in health care, social services, and the economy.
Our research and experimental development projects are led by Upkar Singh Tatlay, the Managing Director and Lead Developer at OMW. Upkar also serves as the Executive Director of Engaged Communities Canada Society, where he designs and implements programs addressing the systemic gaps experienced by vulnerable groups in accessing equitable solutions to complex health challenges such as those related to food security, homelessness, addiction, and youth development.
We work alongside charitable and non-profit organizations with an innate understanding of the communities they serve and whose initiatives focus on addressing the systemic gaps that exist for communities in accessing equitable solutions to complex health challenges. These agencies focus their efforts on supporting vulnerable individuals including IBPoC populations, those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, children and youth, and individuals experiencing challenges related to socioeconomic factors, mental health, and addiction.
Located at the Health and Technology District in Surrey, BC, OMW is a health technology firm listed under the Business Corporations Act of British Columbia.
