Who We Are
Renewed Computer Technology (RCT) is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that empowers learners, educators and not-for-profit organizations with increased access to information and communications technology (ICT), skill development and learning opportunities, in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
We work to meet the growing demand for computers in the classroom and in the community
Reusing technology has even greater benefits than recycling – saving greenhouse gases and conserving more energy and raw materials over its lifecycle
pounds of e-waste diverted and 8.5 million tonnes of water saved in over 25 years
We provide paid work experience for youth, empowering them to compete in the knowledge-based economy
students and volunteers given hands-on computer repair skills and training
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.”

We believe in the potential of our youth, giving them the opportunity to develop and expand their skills through our Computers for Schools Plus Internship Program, which provides paid work experience to 55 individuals each year, for youth aged 16-30.
Give your used technology a new life! We work to refurbish each computer to extend its life cycle for additional years of meaningful use.
