This program is funded by the Government of Canada.

#WelcomeRefugees

Thanks to funding provided by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada through Computers for Success Canada, Renewed Computer Technology has provided over 3000 free refurbished laptops to Syrian Families landing in Ontario in December 2016.

This was part of a larger national effort to aid our new friends, neighbours, and community members in having all the resources necessary to start anew here in Canada. If families required more than one computer, they were directed to other programs which offer affordable and accessible computers.

RCT worked directly with settlement agencies across the province to deliver these laptops in a timely manner, while also providing support through giving a one year limited parts and labour depot warranty from the date the laptop is received by the family. Each computer came loaded with a Windows Operating System, Microsoft Office Suite and skill development software.

Heart Warming Notes:

“Thank you very much for the laptop donation. This laptop has helped me to study and obtain my G1 driving license. I used this to help with studying and practicing for G1 test online and having it allowed me to complete my G1 test. This was very important to me when settling in Canada. On top of receiving my G1 license it has helped me search for other information, and with helping my children complete their school work. Many thanks to you.” ~ Mohamed, Client of Arsim Aliu, Immigrant Services Department, YMCA Hamilton/ Burlington/ Brantford

“Thank you RCT for providing laptop to us. IT was very useful and essential in my settlement to Canada. I was able to search online and get my job by using the laptop. I could connect with family and friends through the internet using the laptop, as well as using it for my studies, preparing for presentations and doing homework. I also was able to search information and submit the application for my parents to immigrate to Canada.” ~ Nidal, Client from Immigration Services Department, YMCA Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford
