NS 211 Phone Service Expansion

Printer-friendly version

211– the not-for-profit phone and web-based service that helps thousands of people every year find programs and services in their community – just got better.  As of February 13, Nova Scotians are able to text or chat online to get important information on programs and services offered by community groups, non-profits and government departments.

The number to text, from any mobile device, is 21167 (the number “67” corresponds to “NS” on a phone pad) and chat is available on the 211NS website – www.ns.211.ca.

Nova Scotia’s 211 service launched in 2013, and since that time, over 100,000 phone calls have been answered and almost 300,000 people have found information through the organization’s website.
