In the spirit of the season, most CFS staff are spending the holidays at home with their families. Our staff will not be available to clients from December 24 to January 3. If you are in need of support during that time, please contact the Distress Centre at 403-266-HELP (4357).

If you would like us to contact you when we’re back in the office on January 3, please leave your contact information here. You are a priority for us and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
