We will respond to you within a week. However, if you did not get a response from us please contact as again as something might have gone wonky with the technology. Thank you.

Thank you again for connecting with us.

FYI --IT IS IMPORTANT YOU KNOW there is no guarantee of privacy of your contact information or this message due to: 


(a) inherent privacy flaws when using any technology (e.g., security breaches);

(b) your contact information may need to be released to relevant individuals/professionals if you disclose to a DPS staff member there is a risk of potential harm to self or others (including animals), as we may need to alert others/arrange for outside help to attend to those who may be in distress or who we believe could be at risk for harm;

(c) you are not a client/customer of DPS yet, since we have not had the opportunity to put a formal agreement in place with you where we confirm everyone's understanding of what is being consented to, including the risks and benefits;


(d) any correspondence to DPS staff may be kept (e.g., filed electronically via WIX) and if stored, likely for at least 11 years;

(e) you have not not been briefed on the Alberta laws regarding how long client files are kept when sexual violence has been recorded in the file - so at this point,  we advise you NOT to share any information related to sexual violence (e.g., abuse /assault) until you have been informed of your privacy rights via DPS consent form/service contract.

WANT TO LEARN MORE about the limits to your privacy?  Great idea - please see the information under "counselling tab". We believe it is vital you know your rights before you disclosure personal information to anyone in the helping field.


I recognize that these privacy warnings may not be relevant to why you are contacting us :)

Thank you again for reaching out.
