Computers for Schools (CFS) refurbishes donated digital devices and distributes them to schools, libraries, not-for-profit organizations and Indigenous communities as well as eligible low income Canadians across Canada.
The CFS program has expanded the refurbished device offerings to include not only desktop computers but laptops, tablets and smartphones
Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada leads this program for the federal government, working with provincial and territorial governments, not-for profit organizations as well as the private and volunteer sectors. The program has helped extend the useful life of computer equipment, reducing the overall environmental impact of electronic waste.

Note: Equipment is given on a first-come first-served basis.
