One Phone Number for the RPPEO

One Phone Number for the RPPEO

On July 28th, 2016 the RPPEO migrated to a new telephone system for efficiency. Going forward there will only be one number to call to reach the RPPEO in either Ottawa or Kingston.

When calling the RPPEO, either in Ottawa or Kingston, all you need to do is call 613-737-7228 or 1-877-587-7736. The RPPEO Kingston office will have their main number retired. All staff’s direct lines have also been discontinued. Outside callers will need to call the main line first before being transferred to an RPPEO staff's desk telephone. Our options menu will be expanded to list new options.
