While the holiday season can be a joyous time of year, for many people it may bring additional pressures and challenges.
“It’s important Albertans know help is always available. You are not alone. During the holidays, resources that support the health, safety and security of Albertans will continue to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
– Rajan Sawhney, Minister of Community and Social Services
