Microsoft – Launch of Educational Voucher Phase of the Settlement Distribution

Microsoft – Launch of Educational Voucher Phase of the Settlement Distribution

The claims period for consumers and volume licensees has closed and approved claimants across Canada will soon be receiving funds. Now over $100 million of the remaining settlement funds is being used to give students at K-12 schools and post-secondary institutions across Canada access to new computer hardware, software and related training.

Settlement funds will be distributed to Canadian educational institutions in the form of vouchers for new hardware and software. Some of the funds will go towards new hardware for K-12 schools, with a priority on underserved schools that would benefit from increased student access to computer learning. The rest of the funds will go towards new software for both K-12 schools and post-secondary institutions, prioritizing those which would benefit most from increased access to software. Institutions can also use their vouchers for professional development services to help teachers take full advantage of the new technology in their classrooms.

Eligibility for the school voucher program is being determined by an oversight committee of educators which will also monitor and report on the impact of the program. To launch the program, a small number of educational institutions across Canada were selected by the oversight committee to receive vouchers for the upcoming school year (starting September 2022). Distribution of vouchers to these institutions is underway. The remainder of the settlement funds will be made available for hardware and software vouchers for educational institutions across Canada later in 2022-23.
