Computers for Schools exists to give Canadian youth greater access to computer technology to help them develop the skills they need to succeed in a knowledge-based society, while diverting millions of tons of e-waste from landfill sites across our country.
About Computers for Schools - Newfoundland and Labrador
Computers for Schools (CFS) was created in 1993 by the Federal Government and the TelecomPioneers to give Canadian youth greater access to computer technology helping them develop the skills they need to succeed in a knowledge-based society. The CFS program in Newfoundland and Labrador collects, repairs and refurbishes donated surplus computers and distributes them to schools, libraries and other non-profit organizations. In addition to coordinating computer donors and recipients, CFS oversees three repair and refurbishment centres throughout the province. These centres are staffed by volunteers, students and recent post-secondary graduates of technical programs. Canada’s economic future depends on educating and training our young people to fill the knowledge-based jobs of tomorrow. If the next generation of Canadians is technologically literate and skilled, Canada will compete and succeed in the global market.
