Did you know? 211 is an information and referral service that connects people to a full range of community, social, government and health services programs. The service relies on an easy-to-remember, three-digit, non-emergency telephone number that connects to a 24-hour call centre.

The lead agency for the introduction of 211 service in Renfrew County is Renfrew County United Way (RCUW) in partnership with the Community Information Centre of Ottawa and the Community Resource Centre (Killaloe) Inc. The data base supporting 211 in Renfrew is a version of County Connections, a directory of human services funded in part by RCUW. RCUW funded the Community Resource Centre (Killaloe) Inc. to ensure that this data base was formatted to province-wide standards at the time of the official launch. Funding contributions from the provincial and federal governments are in place, and discussions are underway for contributions from municipal levels of government.
