Yukon residents are now able to access the 211 service that already helps many Canadians deal with life’s challenges. This free, 24/7 service provides confidential, multilingual information about community and social services available locally.
On Nov. 20, 2020, United Way Centraide Canada published Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s video message congratulating United Way Centraide and 211 on the nationwide expansion of 211 service so that it now includes the Yukon and other remote parts of Canada.
Yukon211 is funded by the Government of Canada through Employment and Social Development Canada in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and by Yukon Government Health and Social Services. It is delivered in partnership with United Way Centraide Canada, which works with 211 services across Canada. The Yukon211 service is provided by BC211, a non-profit that has been providing community information and referral for over 50 years.
