Search Tips

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Here are some hints on how to narrow down or broaden your search.

  1. Not sure what service/program you need?
    Try searching your city to see what resources are available in your area.

  2. Too many results found?
    Trying using Add a Category filter or Add a Location filter buttons to filter your search. You can also enter key words (like “housing”) into the search box at the top of the map.

  3. Too few results found? Want more results?
    Click the Remove the Category filter or Remove the Location filter to broaden your search.

  4. No results found for your keyword?
    • Try a different keyword, for example instead of ‘help’ try writing the type of help you want, such as ‘counselling’.
    • Limit the amount of keywords in your search. Instead of ‘I need counselling’, try just ‘counselling’.
    • Check the spelling of your keyword.
  5. What do the pins represent on the map?
    • The black numbered pins represent multiple resources available in that area – zoom in to narrow in on the specific resources
    • The different coloured pin represent resources from different categories (e.g. Legal Support, Counselling and Mental Health Support, Aboriginal Support Services, etc.)
