With financial support programs lauched by all levels of government, as well as some community groups, Capital Ward City Councillor Shawn Menard has created one online stop for residents to more easily navigate how to go about getting help.

He and his team launched a new webpage, which lists various support options along with links for how to access them. 

Menard says they will work to keep the webpage updated as more programs and information become available. 

Residents can also call the City of Ottawa's 2-1-1 Help Line, which offers referrals to local community, social, government and health services.
