CFSC has been coordinating the efforts of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) in delivering 7,500 refurbished computers to Syrian refugees in Canada. The Computers for Schools program was just awarded a medal from Canadian Immigration and Citizenship (IRCC) for its support and involvement in the humanitarian efforts to welcome and resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees. Congratulations to our CFS colleagues and partners across the country for making this very important project a success. Through Computers for Success Canada (CFSC), RCT was happy to assist CultureLink in providing one free laptop computer to more than 150 Syrian families over the past four months and will continue to support them by delivering computers until the project ends. This is an example of just one of over 31 partnerships RCT has forged with organizations across Ontario to ensure that Syrian Families have everything they need to succeed in a digital age. You can help by donating computers to the Alberta Computers For Schools Program.
