BIG NEWS: Soon we will be able to distribute refurbished computers to low-income families! ❤️🖥️
The Connecting Families Initiative was announced today by Minister Navneet Bains. This initiative will allow low-income families to access high speed internet for only $10 a month thanks to the cooperation and support of major telecoms TELUS, Bell Canada, Cogeco, Rogers, SaskTel, Shaw, and Vidéotron.
This initiative will also supply 50,000 free computers for these families and we will be the ones supplying these computers to British Columbians.
“We are very excited to be part of this initiative as it will have a positive impact on BC families and speaks to our organizational vision where everyone has equal access to technology. It brings a new challenge for us to increase the number of computer donations we need to collect and refurbish but it feels great to add families to the groups we have traditionally supported.” - Mary-Em Waddington, Executive Director
