Navigating COVID-19

Free, confidential service launches to help people impacted by COVID-19 navigate available community and government supports

Everyone in Manitoba now has access to 211 phone service and mb.211.ca, a free, confidential information navigation service that connects people to critical government and community-based health and social services in their community thanks to funding from the Government of Canada.  211 Manitoba is led by United Way Winnipeg in collaboration with Volunteer Manitoba and includes a multisector Advisory Committee.

Whether a parent worried about their child's mental health, a senior feeling isolated or anxious about getting necessities, a family struggling to put food on the table, or an individual looking for help to better understand what financial support is available to them, 211 is the front door to support.

211 helps people navigate the complex network of government and community programs and services quickly and easily and promises access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in over 150 languages. Across Manitoba, the service is offered through phone and website. In all cases, 211 confidentially connects people who are seeking support to the right information and services.
