Your application will be reviewed within 1-2 business days. Please ensure you record a valid email address and phone number on your application form. Additional documents might be required for some cases. You must have last held an ID Card and will need to provide proof of identification and Alberta residency with your application.
At the time of your next ID Card service, you will be required to provide proof of Alberta residency and Canadian legal presence.
This application is only applicable to Alberta resident ONLY.
