Since 1977, Distinctive Employment Counselling Services of Alberta (DECSA) has worked to help individuals overcome barriers to employment in a changing world.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that DECSA has shut down permanently. After nearly 43 years of providing supports, services and programs to persons with barriers to employment and education, the non-profit organization has closed its doors at 11515-71 Street.

We will no longer be accepting phone calls and emails. Please inform your staff and contacts of this news.

Your support and involvement over the years has allowed DECSA to support over 40,000 clients. These individuals were given an opportunity to achieve employment, further their education, find a supportive community and re-build their lives. For this, we are eternally thankful.



The DECSA Board of Directors
