How it works
The Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP) collects court-ordered child support, spousal and partner support, and enforces as needed.
Calgary office closure
MEP will no longer offer services to clients at the Calgary MEP office as of Thursday, April 30, 2015. All Calgary files will be transferred to Edmonton.
If you make your payments in person through the Calgary office, you will need to make alternate arrangements for payment as soon as possible to avoid any delays, which could result in penalties for late payment.
Payments to MEP can be made in person at your bank, through on-line or telephone banking, automated bank withdrawal, or by mailing cheques or money orders to the Edmonton MEP office. For more information about payment methods, please see the Making Payments information sheet (PDF), or contact the Client Service Centre at 310-0000 (toll-free in Alberta) or 780-422-5555.
