ARRANGING VISITS & EXCHANGES
All visits and exchanges must be pre-arranged through the Dalhousie Place office staff.  Unscheduled visits and exchanges are not permitted.  At times, there are waiting lists.

Visits are a maximum of 2 hours in length, and up to twice a week.

Exchanges can occur as often as court ordered.

If you need to cancel a visit or exchange, please contact Dalhousie Place at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled visit/exchange.  There is a fee for last minute cancellations and no shows.  Repeated cancellations will  be reviewed and may result in discharge from the program
