Canawrap has partnered with this amazing organization to bring together our passion for the craft of business marketing and advertising by way of vehicle wraps as well as create additional awareness and support to groups that make a difference in our communities and our country
For every project that is produced for our customers, Canawrap issues a donation (a percentage of the total project) to One Laptop Per Child Canada.
When applicable Canawrap will recognize our customer and their choice of group by way of the Canawrap social media channels along with imagery of the work completed.

OUR MOST RECENT DONATION WAS AMAZING!
Canawrap customers donated to Ross River, Yukon in time for National Aboriginal Day 2017
As a result, 20 Indigenous students of Ross River school now have access to laptops and digital resources with which to build their computing, literacy and mathematical skills.
Ross River School is located 5 hours north of Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory and has a student population of 60 Indigenous youth.
“The use of technology is greatly needed to enhance student success in school. Many do not own computers, so the use of technology at home is limited. New digital tools enhance student learning both at school and home. The Kaska language can also be delivered through technology now that students have access to computers. This helps to ensure that all Kaska youth have full access to technology when required.” – Fran Etzel, Principal.
One Laptop Per Child Canada is SUPPORTING 21ST CENTURY LEARNERS IN ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE!
The fastest growing demographic in Canada, Aboriginal youth are creative, skilled and eager to learn. Over 75% of on-reserve students attend kindergarten or elementary school, where a lack of access to technology and connectivity is reported by more than 50% of schools (AFN, 2011). One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Canada works to bridge the digital divide for Aboriginal youth, providing students with the latest learning-centred technology, enhancing existing educational programming and empowering youth to play an active role in their own learning.
To date, OLPC Canada has provided education technology to more than 9,000 Aboriginal students in 60+ communities located in 9 provinces and 2 territories!
We here at Canawrap believe that The Wrap For Change Initiative will help get more awareness to OLPC Canada and more kids tablets sooner than later! We are super excited to work with such an amazing organization
