Service Canada Centre in Slave Lake Closed Until Further Notice

SLAVE LAKE, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - The Service Canada Centre at 100 Main Street South, Sawridge Plaza in Slave Lake has been temporarily closed due to wildfires that have affected much of Slave Lake. This Service Canada Centre will remain closed until further notice.

Service Canada regrets any inconvenience to individuals during this period and would like to advise clients that alternate Service Canada locations can be found at:

Grande Prairie Service Canada Centre
Towne Centre Mall, Suite 100
9845 99th Ave
Grande Prairie, Alberta
Edmonton North Service Canada Centre
Northgate Centre, Unit 2000
9499 137th Avenue Northwest

Service Canada is working hard to find other ways to restore services to the Slave Lake area. Due to the evacuation of the town of Slave Lake and limited use of power and telephone services, a contingency plan is being developed.
