Helping connect Canadians in need

Access to a phone can be a lifeline for youth aging out of foster care and low-income seniors, helping them stay connected to loved ones and vital support networks. Mobility for Good® supports these in-need community members with free or discounted phones and rate plans.

About Mobility for Good®

First launched in 2017 in BC as a youth focused program, Mobility for Good has now grown to support youth nationally, and also extended to seniors in 2020. It offers:

  • Free refurbished smartphones and plans for youth leaving foster care

  • Subsidized plans and the option to buy a discounted device from Mobile Klinik for low-income seniors

  • Digital literacy and safety workshops and resources through TELUS Wise®️

Connecting Canadians in need on the network that gives back

“This program connects you to family, to employers, and to business opportunities. It’s more than a phone."
