Update December 1, 2020 


As we continue with the COVID-19 pandemic and have new restrictions in place, we want to remind everyone that we are still open and are here to help. At the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, we are taking every possible precaution to protect our clients, residents and staff. We are continuously re-assessing our procedures and protocols to keep everyone safe, and continue to provide our services as best as possible. 


Our community-based programs continue to follow the protocols advised by Alberta Health Services, and we continue to provide support and counselling virtually. 


As new restrictions in schools have been added, school-based supports for students have gone virtual and remain open for in-home sessions.  Our therapeutic team offers short term counselling, acknowledging the many students and families feeling the pressure on their peers, family or dating relationships during this challenging time. For a referral or further information to our child, youth and family or healthy relationships programs please contact 403-234-7233 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
