Telephone consultation is also available for assistance with legal and financial issues (to a maximum of three hours each, per family unit per calendar year), or for problems associated with childcare.

Simply call Arete’s toll-free number 1 877 412-7483 and have your Firm and Certificate number handy. Representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to speak with you and all calls are completely confidential.
