Our Counselling Program offers affordable short-term counselling for residents of Vegreville and the County of Minburn to address a range of challenges, including those relating to the impact of COVID-19. Current counselling sessions will be offered through telephone and/or video conferencing services.

This program may be covered by extended health care benefits. Please call your health care benefits provider to see if you are covered. If you do not have coverage, this program uses a sliding fee scale. The sliding scale fee is determined by FCSS and uses family income before deductions to figure out the fee for service.
