Free Refurbished Computer (Canada)

You may qualify for a free computer

You may qualify for a free computer

You may qualify for a FREE computer that has been donated and refurbished.

The used computers are good quality - Pentium 4 and laptops, and there are only three criteria needed to qualify:

  • Family income less than $ 40,000 a year

  • Belong to one or more of targeted groups (below)

  • Don't already have a computer at home

There are a couple of other things to make note of...

Admin Fee: $ 20.

Limit: One free computer per family.

The computers are available to people in one of more of these groups:

  • people with disabilities

  • visible minorities

  • Aboriginals

  • youth 7 to 17 years

  • persons on social assistance

who also meet the income criteria, and who do not already have a computer at home.

In order to apply, you must fill out an on-line request (ironic, I know) and wait one week to find out if you're approved.

Once approved, your name will then go on a wait list, to be matched against donated computers.

The computers have been donated from organizations right across Canada to the Computer Recycling Program of Community Outreach Canada.

Apply for free computer

If you or your organization would like to donate computers, laptops, printers, scanners or other computer technology, you can join this Community Computer Recycling Program too.

Brother is severely hearing impaired
by: Advocating Sister

My brother is 50 yrs old and is on ODSP because of his disabilities. It was brought to my attention that my brother would benefit from the use of a computer to help him connect with his siblings who live outside of Toronto. Several months ago I heard of an organization that helps with refurbished computers for those who are on ODSP, sadly I can't recall who or where this place is…If anyone can direct me or knows of a place that I can call please respond to this ad. My brother has many disabilities and lives on his own now that our Mom has passed away, and this would be the perfect way for him to stay in touch with his family and not feel like a social outcast. Thank you for any help you can send our way!
