Front Desk

You're most welcome to visit to ask questions or seek referrals. Before making the trip to our offices in Triffo Hall, however, please check our website! It has been refined over the years to answer most questions. 

We are open Monday to Friday, from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

You can also reach our front desk staffers at (780) 492-2175 or by e-mail at
