211 Saskatchewan

Connect with resources
in your community.

United Way is leading the implementation of 211 throughout Saskatchewan to help improve access to services
and support the mental, emotional and spiritual well-being for everyone in our province.


211 is a free, confidential, service that connects individuals to human services in the province by telephone, text, or online chat,
plus a searchable website with over 6,000+ listings of community, government and non-clinical health services across the province.


A significant barrier for individuals and families to accessing the services they need is the complexity of finding the information they are looking for.  Whether it is finding assistance with basic needs such as food, shelter and employment, looking for support for an aging parent, or trying to find childcare, navigating through all of the information out there can be overwhelming, confusing and ultimately a roadblock to finding support.



211 provides access to community, non-emergency health and government services and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Available in over 175 languages, including 17 Indigenous languages available over the phone. 211 helps first responders, social workers, police, and other service providers find accurate information to direct people to the right resources, and relieving pressure on 911 by providing a more appropriate option in non-emergency situations.
