Mobility for Good Expands into Nova Scotia, Northern Canada, Quebec and Saskatchewan
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 across Canada achieve independence by providing them with a free phone and a $0 plan, including 3 GB of data for two years.
Helping Youth Stay Connected | Mobility for Good
Leaving foster care isn’t always easy. That’s why we’re giving free phones and plans to youth who have aged out of foster care through our TELUS Mobility for Good program. Through this program, we can help them achieve independence and stay connected to valuable resources.
Every year thousands of youth age out of Canada’s child welfare system and are no longer eligible for the government support they had been receiving while in care. With more than 5,400 youth already enrolled nationwide, TELUS Mobility for Good provides youth transitioning from care with a free smartphone and free TELUS mobile rate plan, including unlimited nationwide talk and text and up to 3GB of monthly data usage. While TELUS is providing the service to youth for free, the bills will appear in the youth’s name to help them build positive credit and gain the skills required to manage their finances in the future.
