The City of Airdrie is providing a one-stop shop for local residents to easily access social and health-related services close to them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City’s Department of Social Planning has partnered with, a free location-based services network that will allow residents to find the closest, most-relevant service for their needs at the click of a button.

“It is critical that we continue to look for innovative ways to connect those residents in need,” said Mayor Peter Brown.

“My hope is that this option will break down barriers for people who need support during this time.”

Organizations listed on HelpSeeker in Airdrie provide support relating to:

  • counseling
  • addictions
  • abuse
  • domestic violence

“In addition to the Community Resource page shared on our website, we want to ensure Airdrie residents have up-to-date information about what social and health supports and services are operating during COVID-19,” said Pauline Clark, team leader of social planning.

“It is our hope that this online platform will connect residents who are most in need, with the supports and services they are looking for.”

If residents do not have access to a computer, they can contact North Rocky View Community Links Society at 403-945-3900.

Agencies or not-for-profit organizations that provide social and health-related supports and services in Airdrie can sign up with HelpSeeker by emailing
