The money will help the school buy computers and other tech-based supplies for its students.

The program, with $100,000 in funding from Desjardins and administered in collaboration with the EdCan Network, began in 2020 as a response to the need for digital equipment which was exacerbated due to the pandemic. The program plans to relaunch in September for its third year to help an additional 20 elementary and secondary schools.

“We received tech donation applications from deserving schools across Canada, which revealed the alarming inequities faced by too many students, particularly from marginalized communities,” said EdCan chair Anne MacPhee. “We commend Desjardins for contributing significant resources for the tools necessary for student success and we’re thrilled to continue to work with them to bridge this persistent equity gap.”

Marilyn Horrick, Desjardins senior vice-president of the Ontario market, said her firm is proud to continue the program.

“As schools manage the ongoing shift to remote and hybrid learning, the Desjardins Tech Donation Program addresses an evident need for technology-based supplies.”
