About the Computers for Schools program

Computers for Schools (CFS) refurbishes donated computers and distributes them to schools, libraries, not-for-profit organizations and Aboriginal communities across Canada. Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada manages this program for the federal government, working with provincial and territorial governments, not-for-profit organizations as well as the private and volunteer sectors.

IMPACTS OF THE CFS PROGRAM

The refurbishment of over 1.5 million computers by CFS workshops saves: 10,318,000 barrels of oil, 478,884,000 gallons of gasoline, 400,000 tons of CO2 emissions.
In addition to providing schools with computer equipment, CFS workshops have contributed to the learning journey of many young Canadians by offering over 6,000 paid internships.
Every year, the CFS program helps Canadian schools, libraries and community organizations save thousands of dollars by offering them free computer equipment.

IT EQUIPMENT DONATION

Contribute to the digital inclusion of all of Canada

Ecogical, easy and safe

In addition to being environmentally friendly, your donation offers a learning experience to the intern who refurbishes it and a work tool to the client to whom it is sent. We even offer free pick-up service for 10 or more computers.

All Computers for Schools workshops follow rigorous procedures for storing hard drives and erasing data, and are regularly audited by data security firms to ensure the quality of these procedures. Hard drives that can't be erased will be securely destroyed.
