Acceptable ID Requirements
In the Province of Alberta, Service Alberta requires us to ensure that clients are able to prove their identity AND residency in order for us to provide certain services. In place for a reason, these requirements are designed to protect the public and to ensure that no one else can obtain your identification card or driver’s licence. Accordingly, we simply cannot provide Alberta identification cards or operator’s licences unless certain criteria are met. Please refer to our list of acceptable IDs below.
TEMPORARY DOCUMENTS AND PHOTOCOPIES OF DOCUMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
