The program is voluntary and confidential. Individuals seeking help are not identified to the Law Society of Alberta, the Canadian Bar Association or any other entity.

Call Assist 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1.877.498.6898 from anywhere in Alberta for on-call support, emergency help or to set up an appointment with a counsellor.

The first four hours of professional assistance supplied by Assist are free of charge. After that, the individual is responsible for costs incurred.
