Kitchener Tech Connects Program Registration

The City of Kitchener received funding from the New Horizons for Seniors Program to offer a technology lending library and free technology training classes to adults 55+.  Individuals interested in this program have the option to borrow a technology device enabled with or without cellular data for up to 30 days. Preference for borrowing the devices will be given to Kitchener residents.

The goal of the Kitchener Tech Connects program is not only to lend older adult’s devices, but to provide free introductory technology training classes to increase their comfort in using technology.
