Independent Counselling commenced services in Northern Alberta in 1999. The Grande Prairie office opened in 2001. We successfully met the CET standards and are CET certified Independent Counselling Enterprises will continue work within the guidelines of the CET standards. ICE is also certified by the Alberta Home Support Association and has attained COR certification for Health and Safety practice through WCB.
Independent Counselling Enterprises schedules annual agency wide SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) meetings with all key managers present. This is to ensure that agency goals and objectives are being addressed and met. Goals focus on CET standards, quality measures, staff training and agency direction. Bi-annual meetings are also scheduled to review progress and make adjustments or additions where required to the goals within the plan. Monthly management teleconference meetings are held to ensure consistency of expectations and operations across ICE.

The Grande Prairie office offers support in Grande Prairie and the surrounding area.

Community access includes but is not limited to skill development, health and safety awareness, recreation and leisure pursuits, cultural awareness and inclusion, volunteerism, exploring natural supports, and educational pursuits. Individual interests, skills, and abilities determine the activities included in community access programs.

During all phases of this service, self assessments and skill assessments are completed to determine skill sets and areas requiring reduced or more intensive supports.
