211: A Tool for Alleviating Poverty @ Online
Jan 25 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Reliable information is critical for solving problems and driving social innovation. By combining information about community services with cutting-edge technology, 211 is creating a powerful new form of social infrastructure. As a multi-channel information and navigation system, 211 is uniquely situated at the interface between the human needs associated with poverty and society’s policy and programmatic responses.

The support 211 provides is indispensable, particularly for people experiencing poverty and personal trauma who’s complex needs may pose barriers to obtaining help.

Now available to more than 20 million Canadians living in large cities, small towns, and rural and remote communities, 211 will expand to reach an additional 5 million people during the first half of 2018.

This webinar will explore how 211 is increasingly being leveraged by a wide range of stakeholders – people with lived experience, social service agencies, researchers and social planners, governments and other funders – to effectively address poverty.

This webinar is hosted by Tamarack.
