COMPUTERS FOR SUCCESS NUNAVUT

The CFS program was co-founded in 1993 by Industry Canada and the Telecom Pioneers. It is a national program that refurbishes and delivers, at little or no cost, technology from government organizations.

Computers for Success Nunavut is administered by The Pinnguaq Association with support from the entire CFS network across Canada, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) and Computers for Success Canada (CFSC).

The Pinnguaq Association works to make computers available to any Nunavummiut or Nunavut based organizations that require them with a special focus on combining the work of the CFS Nunavut program with the work of the te(a)ch program currently being developed in the territory.

OUR INITIATIVE

Pinnguaq

CFS Nunavut is operated in part by Pinnguaq. Pinnguaq means “Play” in Inuktitut and with offices now in Nunavut, Ontario and B.C. we have a mandate to create interactive experiences that push both the limits of technology and cultural expression. Whether it be through film, virtual reality, gaming, education or application development, we use the passion for culture and technology to both stimulate and entertain.

Te(a)ch

The te(a)ch program is an up-and-coming education network that will offer computer science and programming opportunities to Nunavummiut through a Nunavut designed curriculum. Perhaps most exciting, CFS Nunavut is working with te(a)ch to provide computers to participants of the te(a)ch program.

You can learn more about te(a)ch on the official website. If you’re interested in using computers to explore computer science, engineering and mental health in your community, let us know!
