relocate the Fort Saskatchewan Addiction and Mental Health Services to the Sherwood Park Addiction and Mental Health Clinic Location.

AHS AMH community and ambulatory clinics will retain the capacity to serve clients. This will look
different in each clinic, especially with smaller clinics that are relocated to other physical
locations in an attempt to continue to provide services with adequate staffing and regular
operations.
