Catering and Room Rentals

Barnett House, The Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA) Edmonton office, is located at 11010 142 street T5N 2R1. It has meeting facilities for groups ranging in size from 10 to 400 people with a variety of catering options.

The ATA reserves the right to change, cancel or reassign meeting rooms based on the needs of the Association in the unlikely event that a meeting room is cancelled all together, the ATA will make reasonable efforts to find another venue for your meeting.

Groups outside of the ATA requesting a meeting space must place a catering order.

Buffet items will be displayed for a maximum of two hours at any function to ensure the quality and integrity of the product, unless otherwise stated in the catering brochure.

Orders for products that are not part of our standard catering brochure are subject to availability and may cost considerably more than expected. The best value is from selections in our catering brochure as they are listed.

Our in-house audio-visual equipment is available for rent. Please ensure that you request and make arrangements to test functionality to suit your presentation needs a week or more before you function.

Complimentary guest parking is available in Visitor Parking. Please follow signage indicating where to park, as enforcement is carried out through our bylaw officers.

The facility is smoke free, including all entrances and the courtyard. Smoking is only permitted in the designated area outside the building.

The ATA is not responsible for the loss or damage of items left in the facility. Personal effects and equipment must be removed at the end of the function.

Bar service is governed by Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) regulations, and no outside liquor is permitted.

All décor must not deface or damage the facility including the use of adhesives, tacks, staples or tape. Confetti or similar décor may not be used, and any cost to clean up or repair will be billed to the client accordingly.

Functions with a DJ or live music are subject to a SOCAN fee and ReSound fee.

Please send inquiries and meeting room requests to meetingrooms@ata.ab.ca.
