Ontario 211 Services Annual Report 2015-2016

Ontario 211’s 2015-2016 Annual Report is now online. It has been a busy and productive year implementing major investments in technology that aimed at integrating our 211 Service Providers into one system. These investments have opened the door to new partnerships that will also benefit from our integration, efficiency and our exciting new Business Intelligence platform. Plus, we share why people call 211, how our Regional Service Partners support local initiatives and of course, our financial summary.
