Description:

This event will help service provider staff connect their clients to programs and resources they need to better access/use technology.

Especially during the pandemic, newcomer clients are experiencing barriers to accessing and using technology to further their settlement needs. So, this event will showcase a number of organizations in the community - their programs and services - that aim to make technology (appropriate and affordable devices and internet and digital literacy training) more accessible to vulnerable residents.
