Wind has announced that they will be supporting Syrian refugees new to Canada with free phone service.

The mobile phone company is currently accepting donations of used cell phones at all Wind locations. Wind plans to donate the phones, along with two years of free cell phone service to Syrian refugees coming to live in the Greater Toronto Area.

This initiative is being done by Wind in conjunction with Lifeline Syria , a community engagement initiative formed in response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

According to a report on CBC news , Toronto is expecting 2,600 privately sponsored Syrian refugees to settle in the city.

The city's downtown and mid-town will receive 1,326 refugees and Willowdale will host 1,079 refugees. Other areas of the GTA will also be receiving newcomers in lesser numbers.

As of December 2014, WIND Mobile, a Canadian wireless telecommunications provider operated by Globalive, was the country’s fourth largest mobile operator with 800,000 active subscribers.
