Thales Canada Contributes to ERA’s Charitable Donations Program

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) would like to personally thank Thales Canada for contributing to our Charitable Donations Program! They supported our mission of reducing e-waste by recycling their unwanted electronic devices with the ERA. Through the use of ERA’s pickup services along with our data security measures, we were able to refurbish their devices to give to organizations in need.

In Canada, Thales is relied on to innovate for customers with high-stakes goals, critical missions and big ambitions. Their commitment to mastering digital capabilities in Canada strengthens the nation’s economy – through high-technology jobs, investments in domestic research and technology, and solutions for the urban rail, aerospace, defence, digital identity and security sectors.

Thales Canada is also committed to helping the Toronto community with refurbished computers and recently donated 2 laptops to the Brain Injury Society of Toronto to help their clients stay connected during the pandemic and 3 laptops to Everdale Environmental Learning Centre.

The ERA and Thales Canada are excited to announce their upcoming donation which will be completed in March!

Unity Health- St. Michael’s Hospital is in need of 10 laptops. Due to COVID 19, the FOCUS Team has had to limit their face-to-face interactions with clients. This has created much stress and challenges for their clients. In an effort to continue to support these clients to the best of their ability, they have turned to virtual communications. Unfortunately, many of their clients are unable to afford laptops due to financial difficulty. Having access to the FOCUS team virtually will positively add to their clients’ mental health and wellbeing.

Aptus Treatment Centre will be receiving 4 desktop computers and 2 laptops to offer computer access to the individuals they support who have a developmental disability with a dual diagnosis of mental health. This will help teach their clients computer skills, maintain literacy, and increase their independence.
