211 Eastern Region is proud to support 2014 WOWJune 20, 2014
211 Eastern Region is a proud supporter of Welcoming Ottawa Week, which will take place from June 23 to 28, 2014.
We are supporting WOW this year by conducting a week-long social media campaign to promote WOW events throughout the community and social services sector.
By Raising Connectivity Through 211 we aim to increase linkages between social service organizations and to increase awareness about the needs and opportunities for addressing immigrant integration issues. 211 can empower immigrants to make active choices, to decrease existing barriers to access services, and to reduce isolation.
Immigrants in Ottawa will be encouraged to access community, social and health services through 211 channels.
