Do you know?.. The 211 Community Directory

211 Saskatchewan [www.sk.211.ca] is a free, confidential, and searchable online directory of services in Saskatchewan. The service is funded by the United Ways of Regina and Saskatoon and provides listings for over 5000 social, community, non-clinical health, and government services across Saskatchewan.

Access the website from a mobile phone, a tablet, or any internet-connected computer including those at public libraries throughout the province of Saskatchewan.

To use the 211 service:

Enter www.sk.211.ca  in the browser location then search for resources by category or by topic.
