211 navigation service coming to Yukon
Yukon residents will soon be 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.
Yukon211 is funded by the Government of Canada through Employment and Social Development Canada in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be delivered in partnership with United Way Centraide Canada, which works with 211 services across Canada. The Yukon211 service will be provided by bc211, a non-profit that has been providing community information and referral for over 50 years.
Outreach to Yukon government and community organizations began in September asking for up-to-date information about their services. If we haven't contacted you yet (sorry!) please fill out the attached profile sheet as soon as possible and send it to and for processing.
Feel free to include a copy of any other material or lists of local services that you think would be important for us to review. Being included in the bc211 database is free of charge, and information will be updated regularly.
