Family and Community Services (FCS) is offering both virtual and telephone counselling in its efforts to help residents feel safe, supported and connected. At this time, residents are invited to phone FCS at 780-464-4044 to access supports, including phone or virtual counselling.

We are all impacted by COVID-19. Many of us are experiencing the impacts of financial stress, job loss, domestic violence, restrictions on seeing loved ones and friends or major changes to daily routines. People may feel uncertain, anxious, isolated, irritable, lonely or even have a sense of grief and loss.

No appointment is needed. Call and you will be connected to the next available counsellor.
