Mobility for Good
We believe that connecting youth to the services they need is a critical step in enabling their future success. The Mobility for Good™ program is an innovative collaboration between TELUS and Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada (CAFC) in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick. In BC, we’re partnering with the provincial government’s Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and in Quebec we’re piloting this program with Centre de Jeunesse Foundations in Bas-St-Laurent, Chaudière-Appalaches, Quebec City and Montreal.
By providing vulnerable young adults with access to a mobile device and data plan, we’re giving them the opportunity to succeed.
With this program, eligible youth and young adults that are transitioning from government care are provided with a smartphone and fully subsidised TELUS Mobility voice & data plan for two years. To ensure these young adults are getting the most out of their technology, digital literacy support is available at any of our TELUS Learning Centres, as well as TELUS WISE® resources to help educate on keeping a clean digital footprint and protecting personal information and privacy.
Through Mobility for Good, we're helping young Canadians build their independence and confidence. Equipped with TELUS smartphones, they'll have a reliable connection for prospective employers, post-secondary institutions and landlords, and be able to stay connected with friends and family as they transition to independent living.
This program helps to keep youth transitioning out of care connected to the critical services they need to be successful.
