February 11th is National 211 Day. Let’s celebrate!
February 7, 2018
Across Canada and the United States, 211 helps strengthen communities by connecting people to the help they need, when they need it. Communities are highlighting 211 Day in their own unique ways to recognize this very important resource for individuals and families. Currently, 62% of Canadians have full 211 services (phone and online) available to them, and 87% have access to 211 online resources. With the expansion of 211 services in Saskatchewan and Montreal in the Spring of 2018, the access to full 211 services will increase by 10% to 72% of Canadians. Help United Way celebrate 211 Day in Saskatchewan on social media by using the hashtags #211Sask and #HelpStartsHere.
