Newfoundland and Labrador
Since 1993, the program has delivered more than one million computers to Canadian schools, including over 32,000 to schools in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The organization's activities affect many people. It provides citizens with increased access to technology and provide young people with quality work experience and ensure citizens who are concerned with e-waste in landfills with assurance that Computers for Schools will responsibly reuse or recycle their computers. As computers are set up in classrooms and libraries nationwide, they are expected to encourage more electronic networking between students and teachers in the many remote areas of our country. The use of the Internet has grown exponentially in recent years and shows no immediate sign of slowing within the next decade as both suppliers and users realize the full potential of such a telecommunications medium. This is a particularly appropriate partnership for the Pioneers team. Their philosophy of "answering the call of those in need" has led them to focus on the education sector in all their current community service programs.
Within Newfoundland and Labrador, the Aliant Pioneers play a major roll in this program. Some 20,000 Canadian pioneers, 1,800 of which are in Newfoundland and Labrador, represent a sizeable group providing their assistance to strengthen the provincial education system.
