Government Partners with 211 to Enhance Services for Seniors




Starting Thursday, Jan. 15, seniors will only need to dial three digits to get information they need as the provincewide 211 service will handle inquiries about senior abuse and provincial programs. 211 Nova Scotia is a confidential information and referral service for community, non-profit and government services. It has information about thousands of services, is available 24 hours a day and has interpretation services for more than 100 languages.
