The D-Strings 2013

2013 Soup Sisters 03

DICTA was established in 1990, and since then has become one of the most reputable court reporting firms in Alberta.

At Dicta, our number one goal is to give our clients the best court reporting experience possible, from the moment the booking is made until the final transcript is received.  Our friendly office staff are available to answer your calls from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM and are always eager to help with any questions you have.

All of our court reporters are Certified Shorthand Reporters and are members of the Alberta Shorthand Reporters Association. Our reporters have extensive experience in all areas and have travelled all over the world providing services to our clients.

In addition to providing the complete court reporting experience, Dicta is committed to supporting and helping groups in our community who give attention to causes which improve the quality of lives.

Some of the groups we are proud to support include:

Student Legal Assistance

Since 2014, Dicta is proud to be a sponsor of the Student Legal Assistance Charity Golf Tournament.  100% of the proceeds of this tournament support pro bono legal work for needy Calgarians.

Soup Sisters

Each year, we participate in an evening of soup making at the Cookbook Co. Hundreds of bowls of soup are made in an evening which are then donated to the Calgary Women’s Shelter.


Each holiday season, we adopt some unfortunate families and provide them with the items they need to enjoy the holidays.

Business Fore Calgary Kids

Since 2014, Dicta is proud to be a sponsor of the Business Fore Calgary Kids Charity Golf Tournament.  This helps to raise money for children’s charities such as Even Start for Children Foundation, Between Friends, Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, YMCA Strong Kids Campaign and Hull Services.

Calgary Underwear Affair

Between 2012 to 2014, the D-Strings united to raise money for cancers below the waist. We dressed up and participated in the 10K run or 5K walk.  We are extremely proud to have raised over $25,000 over the three years we did this.  Unfortunately, the event no longer exists.

Alberta Red Cross

Subsequent to the June 2013 flood, Dicta donated 10% of transcript invoices to the Alberta Flood Relief. Some of our reporters volunteered to help those who were direct impacted from the devastating event.
