In November 2008, TBSF hosted a roundtable with Sol Guy and Josh Thome, founders of 4Real. The roundtable brought together Aboriginal leaders and individuals from across Canada to discuss the issues and opportunities facing youth.
TBSF is pleased to have realized the support of the Assembly of First Nations, Métis National Council and Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, and of leading private sector companies such as Vale and BMO Financial Group and from the Government of Ontario, to bring the internationally successful One Laptop Per Child Program to Canada. This program leverages leading-edge technology combined with culturally relevant programming to deliver a unique platform of learning tools to Aboriginal children.
When we launched the OLPC Canada program in 2010, TBSF committed to developing it over the course of a three year pilot. The pilot has been successfully completed and we are pleased that OLPC Canada will continue to grow and reach its full potential as an independent not-for-profit organization.
