There are new guidelines in place to protect the health and safety of staff and clients during in-person appointments:

  • Once someone arrives for their appointment, they are asked to call or text their employment counsellor and the counsellor will come and meet them at the main doors on the first floor at the Alberta Trade Centre. 
  • ONLY the youth meeting with an employment counsellor will be allowed in the office space. NO parents, caregivers, support staff or friends can attend meeting and must wait outside the Alberta Trade Centre.
  • Masks must be worn at all times when inside. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided by the employment counsellor.
  • A YEC staff will explain the in-person appointment guidelines in-full over the phone or email prior to your meeting.



If you sign-up for a remote appointment with 15 minutes or less before the start time - be aware that there could be a bit of a delay in YEC's response.

You will only be allowed to schedule ONE appointment for the entire sign up. 

You will not be able to cancel, edit information or change an appointment time 1 DAY (24 hours) prior to the date/time of your session. If you require to change or cancel your apointment, please call 403-268-2490.
