    • Notary: Please review this FAQ topic to obtain information about where to get your document notarized. It will have to be notarized between May 18 and June 4, 2021.
    • You must be physically present in Alberta to have your documents notarized.

    Hello Tisha,
    This is Qiong Wang. I would like to double check with you before I go to the Notary Office again.
    Only 2 documents need to be notarized, right?! All the Guarantor Letters, Alberta Personal Health Card, and Driver’s Licence (option C) do NOT.
    My Alberta Identity Verification Form was notarized on May 6, 2021. And Residency in Alberta Statutory Declaration will be notarized on May 21, 2021. Are those 2 dates dated correctly (no need to be on the same date, right?)?

    Hello Della,

    1) Only your Identity Verification and Alberta Statutory Form needs to be notarized.
    2) Your Identity Verification Form can be notarized anytime from May 3-June 4, 2021. Your Alberta Statutory Declaration From MUST be notarized from May 18 – June 4, 2021.

    Thank you!

    If you have a photo ID or a driver’s license renewed/issued/upgraded after December 1, 2020 there is no need to apply for Administrative Exceptions. You may also submit your letter of explanation if you choose. There are 3 spots at the bottom of the supporting documents upload page to upload any extraneous documents an applicant wishes to submit in support of their 2022 Cycle application.
