Al-Anon welcomes you…

Need help now? You are not alone…

Despite the impact of the pandemic, there are plenty of groups with (temporary) on-line meetings, for the most part using Zoom. You may even consider checking our World Service Website (al-anon.org) for meetings elsewhere in the world: you are welcome at all of them, any time. It is one of the ‘silver linings’ of Covid-19. Borders and travel time have fallen away!

Any Ontario South meetings within the next couple of hours are shown in the sidebar menu (mobile devices: in the bottom of this page). Groups that cannot meet physically due to temporary accommodation closures and that have no online alternative show with a red tag ‘Temporarily inactive’. Groups that do have virtual meetings until accommodations re-open, are marked with the green tag ‘online’. The details page of such meetings contain either full access details, or a telephone / email contact to obtain the credentials for the online meeting.

Our circle of help with sponsors and fellow group members is here for you – going to a virtual meeting due to Covid-19 restrictions might not feel the same as meeting in person, but it is the next best thing for many of us… Of course, a chat on the phone with another member can also bring relief in difficult situations. Alternatively: Al-Anon and Alateen-content can be found on social media (use buttons on this page to access directly). Check our Contact page for other ways to contact Al-Anon.

Our worldwide organisation also has regular electronic meetings. You can participate by phone via a variety of media from the comfort of your own home. These electronic meetings are listed on this World Service Organisation page:
