reBOOT Canada has been providing computers to those in need since our start in 1995. Ever since our first year, we have Technology Access Programs as a way to offer refurbished computers to individuals and other non-profit organizations. In recent years we have become involved with regional municipalities to distribute computers to families in need, especially around our home base in the Toronto area.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it even more important that families have access to not only reliable Internet but also reliable and affordable computers. Where a family only needed one maybe two computers before the pandemic, they may need 3 or 4 because everybody is doing their work from home. Students, job searchers, people living in isolation, people living far away from their families – they all need technology to stay connected.
reBOOT Canada’s own reSTART program is a way for individuals to apply for an affordable computer to use at home or school. We offer a fixed low price to cover our cost of refurbishing the computer and to warranty it, and installing a fresh copy of Windows 10 on it. You can learn more about our reSTART program at https://www.rebootcanada.ca/programs/restart/
If your company or organization would like to support reSTART and other Technology Access Programs, please consider donating your surplus computer equipment to us. Learn more at https://rebootcanada.ca/donate.
