Become an Agent

Calling all BCIT faculty and staff: now's the time to Get Print Smart. It's a magenta level alert: not quite printing and paper 'KAOS,' but we need to get this situation under, well, 'CONTROL'!

BCIT used 33.8 million sheets of paper last year alone (fiscal year 2009). While much of this printing, copying and paper use is just part of doing our job, there are ways we can easily reduce this number without feeling a thing.

The shoe-phone is ringing, and this time it's for you. Read this site, and help BCIT reach its goal of reducing paper use by 20%. You'll help save trees, save money, and save the world... one sheet of paper at a time.


Agent recruitment is now closed!


Thank you to all BCIT faculty and staff who became Get Print Smart Agents.
