We are excited to announce that, effective June 15th, we will be able to welcome clients back into our office.

In order to follow the safety guidelines set in place by the Government of Alberta, we will limit the number of meeting rooms available and ensure there is enough time to thoroughly clean the areas between the meetings. All face to face client meetings will need to be booked in advance by phoning our front desk at 403-347-2226. 

In order to keep our clients and staff safe, we ask that you stay home if you: 

  • have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath
  • are a close contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19

Help us to be a successful part of Alberta's Relaunch Strategy to gradually reopen businesses and get people back to work!
