bc211 is a non-profit organization that provides confidential information and referral to community, government, and social services via telephone, text message, and a website.
EHOs witness a wide range of societal issues that impact environmental health. These issues may arise as incidental observations during inspections or through calls from members of the public to the health authority. Although EHOs may be aware of a broad range of factors that affect the health of individuals or the public, many of these issues fall outside their scope of practice.
Through a partnership project with BCCDC, EHOs from across BC have been trained to use bc211 referral services to connect clients to appropriate services in their area.
EHOs interested in receiving bc211 training can contact their regional manager or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about bc211 training for EHOs.
