The TELUS Mobility for Good program (M4G) is a partnership between MCFD, TELUS and the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada. TELUS Mobility for Good offers eligible young people from care a free phone and 2-year data plan at no cost. After the 2 years is up, young adults can have a low cost, $35/month plan!
To make it easier for you to apply, the program is now fully administered by TELUS (previously shared with Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada).
*NEW* As of December 1, 2019, the M4G plan now includes the Peace of Mind functionality which throttles down the data speed after 3 GB and does not charge for the slower speed data. This means there is no possibility of overage charges.
Am I eligible for the TELUS mobility for good program?
You can apply for the TELUS M4G program if:
- You are between the ages of 19 – 26 at the time of application
- You were in the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) or a Delegated Aboriginal Agency (DAA) or on a Youth Agreement (YAG) and aged out at 19
- OR you are eligible for the Agreements with Young Adults (AYA) program (NOTE: You do not need to be on AYA, just eligible for it.)
TELUS Internet for Good
*NEW* Effective May 6th, 2020, young adults who are accepted to the M4G program will be eligible for TELUS Internet for Good. The program offers a 300 GB internet plan for $9.95 per month (plus applicable taxes) for 2 years.

This offer is not retroactive and individuals who were accepted to the M4G program prior to May 6, 2020 will not be eligible for the TELUS Internet for Good program.
