  • Diverts toxic elements such as: lead, cadmium & mercury from landfills.

  • Builds community capacity through local charities, libraries and non-profits with a learning focus
  • Increases computer access in kindergarten to grade 12 across Ontario enabling learners to gain relevant, transferable computer skills
