Computers for Schools Plus (CFS+) – a national partnership-based program that refurbishes digital devices donated from government, private businesses and individuals for use by schools, libraries, not-for-profit organizations, Indigenous communities and eligible individuals. This program is funded by the Government of Canada.

“It was very frustrating knowing that in our world, in which a computer is a necessity, there are people that just cannot afford one. RCT gives people the hope they need to go forward by providing access to a computer that can help them reach their goals.”
