Need a computer?
We collect and refurbish used devices to circulate them back to the individuals and families in need across Ontario.
How it works
We work with various partners to get donations and organize special TechCollect Drive events across Ontario.
Reusable equipment, such as laptops, desktops, monitors, and other peripherals, are wiped/erased and refurbished with the support of the Tech4All Youth and the Edutechconnect volunteer teams. The rest is responsibly recycled through DnC Metal Recycling, RCT and Electronics Recycling Association.
Through special grants and financial donations, eligible applicants become owners of these refurbished devices.
Before becoming device owners, eligible applicants are asked to complete mandatory technology training and referred to Rogers Connect for Success that provides low cost internet service to families in need and other support programs (if applicable).
Our inventory varies and depends on the quantity and quality of the donations received.
