Telus Mobility for Good

TELUS is working with Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada to support young people in their transition out of care by providing free cell phone packages over a two-year period. TELUS’ Mobility for Good™ program will provide youth with access to a TELUS cell phone plan at $0 per month, which will include unlimited across Canada talk and text and up to 3GB of monthly data usage. This service will help youth to stay in touch with friends and workers, and access important services and resources, including employment and academic opportunities. Youth who do not have a phone will have the option of receiving a smartphone from TELUS. At this time the Mobility for Good program is open to youth who were in care in Canada.

To learn how TELUS Mobility for Good is helping youth stay connected with loved ones and supports, read the latest impact report here.
