Helping youth achieve independence

For youth leaving foster care, their phone can be their lifeline, helping them build credit, search for somewhere to live, find education and job opportunities, and stay in touch with friends and vital support networks.

A collaboration between TELUS and Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada (CAFC) and select Centre de Jeunesse Foundations, Mobility for GoodTM helps these kids  achieve independence by providing them with a free phone and a $0 plan, including 3 GB of data for two years.


Program highlights

  • Access to a refurbished smartphone at no cost

  • $0 per month smartphone plan (including applicable taxes) for two years

  • Unlimited Canada-wide talk and text

  • 3 GB of data per month

  • Digital literacy support available at any of our TELUS Learning Centre

  • TELUS Wise® training and tools to participate safely in our digital world

Finding real connections in a digital world

Every year over two thousand youth transition out of Canada’s child welfare system. Many, like Brittany Milla, struggle to adjust to independent life without the support of permanent families.
