One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Canada
A core program of The Belinda Stronach Foundation (TBSF), OLPC Canada strives to empower Aboriginal youth to play an active role in their own education through access to learning centered technology. Canada's first National One Laptop per Child program, OLPC Canada has provided 3600 laptops to Aboriginal youth 6-12 years of age in rural, remote and urban communities.

OLPC Canada is a testament to the strength of partnerships and the important role the private sector, government and NGOs can play in strengthening communities and strategically investing in Canadian children. The program has been generously supported by Vale, the Bank of Montreal Financial Group and the Government of Ontario.
