BC211 to integrate with UWBC
To increase positive impact in communities across the province, United Way British Columbia (UWBC) and BC211 will integrate on April 1, 2022. This union further strengthens our ability to connect all British Columbians to vital community programs and services for both everyday needs and in times of crisis.
February 11th is 211 Day!
This year, 211 celebrates 20 years of service in Canada.
Join BC211, the United Way and 211 service providers and supporters across Canada and the United States in raising awareness of this vital service.
