Latest News

The Greater Victoria Savings & Credit Union Legacy Foundation has provided funding that will help CanAssist purchase much-needed equipment for its engineering lab.

The foundation presented CanAssist with a $25,000 grant, which is being used to buy equipment that will be used by its hardware engineering team. Items purchased with the funding include a computerized machine that will enable the precision milling of metals.

The amount was matched by an earlier grant from Western Economic Diversification Canada.

The equipment will help increase CanAssist's capacity to provide its innovative customized assistive technologies to more people with disabilities across Greater Victoria and, also, within faster delivery timelines.

CanAssist greatly appreciates the generosity of both the Greater Victoria Savings & Credit Union Legacy Foundation and WED Canada.
