Directory of Ottawa Community Services AKA Blue Book:
The Directory of Ottawa Community Services was a bilingual tool used to search for community, social, government and health services across the City of Ottawa. Because our directories are now available online, we have since stopped publishing its paper incarnation. Check out our new and improved regional database at 211easternontario.ca!
Online Directories are tools clients can use to search our database for information on community, social, government and health services by area served. We currently have 7 online Directories that are available to clients who wish to search for resources online.
The online Directories listed on our website are owned and maintained by the Community Information Centre of Ottawa and do not reflect all of the areas that we serve, as we serve all of Eastern Ontario. Some communities own and maintain their own Directories/Database and therefore are not listed on our website.
Service Lists for specific topics are available upon request; however a service fee does apply.
For more information, please call 211 or 613-761-9076 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Community Information Centre of Ottawa provides address labels for the 800 organizations and programs listed in our Ottawa e-Blue Book, the most comprehensive Directory of Ottawa Community Services.
We also produce labels for approximately 2,100 contacts that are included in our database as well as customized labels for targeted mailings. Our database includes government programs, not-for-profit organizations and various private services, all operating in the health, social and other related sectors.
Customized labels for specific queries are also available.
Some restrictions apply.
