211 Nova Scotia - Launching February 2013




A message from to all non-profit groups in Nova Scotia:
In Nova Scotia, a wide variety of human, social and health related services are offered by local community groups, non-profit agencies and government departments. Finding the right service at the right time though, can be a real challenge.

Beginning next February, a “211” service will provide Nova Scotians with a free, confidential information and referral program for the thousands of these services provided across the province. It will be available throughout the province, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by simply dialling “2-1-1” to speak to a helpful staff member, or by searching our on line database, which will be up and running when 211 launches.

To help Nova Scotians in every community and make good use of your services and programs, we need complete and accurate information. We want to ensure all services provided by community groups have been included for each and every community in Nova Scotia. 211 Nova Scotia is inviting all non-profit providers of human, social and health related services in communities throughout the province to contact us to confirm that the 211 database has the right information about your service. We are a non-profit association – there is no cost to any organization to have information included in our database. You can reach our team members by calling 902-466-5721 or emailing info@ns.211.ca. We welcome inquiries from the general public as well. Information about 211 is available on our website at www.ns.211.ca. This service is supported by the Province of Nova Scotia and the United Way.
