What is the Ontario 211 Services Corporation?
Ontario 211 Services Corporation (O211SC) was incorporated in 2007 with a mission to develop, sustain and improve an integrated Ontario 211 system. As a not-for-profit agency, it is responsible for licensing of 211 sites, approvals for telephone switching, branding and administering the on-going provincial contributions as 211 moves to province-wide delivery.

The vision of 211Ontario is to become the source for community information and resources throughout Ontario.

211Ontario is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are from financial, community, health, and government backgrounds.

Success Through Partnerships
211Ontario could not exist without the partnership between the Ontario 211 Services Corporation and the eight 211 service providers across Ontario who are responsible for collecting data and providing the information and referral directly to their community:
