Canadian Red Cross Friendly Calls Program

The Canadian Red Cross Friendly Calls program aims to help address heightened feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many are experiencing during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program has existed in some provinces for years. Elsewhere, it was launched as a result of the pandemic, in recognition of the challenges faced by our aging population, and the positive impact the existing Friendly Calls program has on both volunteers and clients.

Do you know someone who could benefit from having someone to talk with on a regular basis?  Fill out an online form or contact 1-833-474-0360 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
