Maintenance Enforcement Program
The Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP) acts as an intermediary, or go-between, for clients who have child or spousal support owed to them. MEP receives the payment from the payor (debtor) and forwards this payment to the recipient (creditor) once the funds have been cleared through a trust account. To register with MEP, a court order for support must be granted, or an agreement must be signed. Either the payor or the recipient of support can register.
Clients can contact MEP by calling 780-422-5555 in Edmonton or calling 310-0000 for toll-free access from anywhere in Alberta. Clients should have their seven digit MEP file number and personal identification number (PIN) available when using the MEP Accounts Online or calling.
