TELUS Internet for Good Pilot Project
We are proud to have partnered with TELUS, the BC Ministry of Social Innovation and Social Development, and the BC Technology for Learning Society to launch a pilot program that offered affordable Internet service to low-income single-parent families across the province on income or disability assistance.
As part of the program, single-parent families receiving income or disability assistance from the province of British Columbia had the opportunity to activate TELUS’ offer of Internet service for $9.95 a month.
Having strong digital literacy and easier access to technology is essential to the success of children, families and all British Columbians. Through the coordinated network of 102 Literacy Outreach Coordinators working in over 400 communities across the province, Decoda is well-positioned to help improve the digital literacy skills of learners of all ages.
