Due to the Covid-19 virus, the government has ordered a shutdown of all non-essential businesses will be closed temporarily. As a result the contact centre will be closed until standard operations can be resumed. The services of chat and telephone will not be available but all online functions and the email service remain available.

If you already have a case in progress, you may continue to communicate with your case manager via their email addresses.

If you have a new inquiry, you can contact us for assistance at inquiry@memorialgrant.ca and one of our case managers will be responding as soon as possible.
