What is 211?

211 is an easy to remember 3 digit telephone number that, in one call, connects people to a full range of community, government and social services information.

211 can help you find:

  • basic needs (food, housing and financial support)
  • government program assistance
  • parenting & family programs
  • Newcomer services
  • Mental health support
  • and MUCH more…

Callers often make contact because of one need (e.g. food bank), but during assessment realize there are other issues that are connected (e.g. lack of training, unemployment, debt, bills). 211 can address all issues in one call.
211 is:

  • Free
  • Confidential
  • Multilingual
  • Available 24 hours a day
  • Answered by trained information and referral specialists
