How it works

The MEP office will be closed on November 22, 2017 from 7:45 am to 1 pm. Staff will not be available at reception or take phone calls during this time. Automated file information will still be available through MEP Accounts Online, or through the automated features of our Phone Line, by calling 780-422-5555 (if long distance, first dial 310-0000).
