bc211 is excited to announce a new initiative in partnership with TELUS. As of today, residents of the Lower Mainland of BC are able to access 211’s service simply by texting 211 on their mobile phones. This key piece of technology is able to respond to the growing challenges that face young people in our communities.

Needs come in many forms. Our goal is to connect people in need with the services that are best suited to help.
