Finding the right support in times of need can be challenging, but Community Connect YYC is changing that. We are a group of Calgary-based agencies dedicated to helping community members to quickly and easily access social support services when they need it most.
Through our direct online booking tool, available 24/7, our partners are putting access to their services in the community’s hands. Clients can book in with one of our agencies to access the support they need. With many virtual and phone appointments to choose from, they can get help soon and when it fits their schedule. Our service connects the community to a range of supports, including several types of counselling, and even basic needs help, often within the week.

How it Works

  1. Choose and book a session - You provide brief information on this secure site. Then choose the counselling time, Monday to Friday, that works for you.
  2. Receive Confirmation - You will receive an email confirmation. At your appointment time, the counsellor will call you.
  3. Your Counselling Session - One 45-90-minute counselling session may be enough to address your needs. Other support options can also be discussed during your session.

Counselling is provided by community partners:

The Alex, carya, Catholic Family Service, Canadian Mental Health Association Calgary, Centre for Sexuality, CUPS, Immigrant Services Calgary, Community Hospice Services and Children’s Grief Centre of Hospice Calgary, Sagesse, YW Calgary
