The registration of all vital events that occur in Alberta including births, deaths, legal change of name and marriages is regulated by Service Alberta.

Each vital statistic certificate has its own specific requirements, so we recommend that you contact our office to secure the eligibility requirements. Important Information.

Only Alberta residents are eligible for a legal change of name. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older or a parents may apply on behalf of their child. There are times when a change or correction to a person’s name doesn’t require a legal change of name and can be adjusted through an amendment process. For couples married in Alberta there are no legal requirements to change a last name. It’s not a legal change of name when a spouse wishes to use his or her married last name or a combination of the two names. That said, any changes to your name outside of marriage do require a legal name change.
Once Vital Statistics receives and approves the legal change of name, a Change of Name Certificate will be mailed to you in 4-6 weeks. For additional information call our office.
