  • Saves greenhouse gases, preserves natural resources and conserves more energy
  • 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

  • Empowers youth to compete in our knowledge-based economy
  • Hands-on computer repair skills and training to over 300 students and volunteers annually
