Becoming a Registry Agent
At this time, Service Alberta does not have any opportunities for additional registry agent locations. Service Alberta does not accept unsolicited proposals.
If new agent locations are required to meet underserved areas of the province the business opportunity is publicly advertised:
- In local newspapers
- On the Alberta Purchasing Connection website
- On the Registry Agents page of the Service Alberta website
The advertisement will invite interested parties to submit a Request for Proposal. Proposals are evaluated in relation to others submitted and the most suitable business case is accepted. An information package is available to the general public, and provides a background on the Registry Agent Network and the requirements to become a registry agent. This package also contains the Product Catalogue, a sample Registry Agent Agreement and the Facility Requirements and Guidelines. A copy of the information package is available here (pdf).
Existing registry agents may sell their business in which case the proposed new owner is required to complete an application and provide a detailed business plan to Service Alberta for approval. The approval process includes a comprehensive security clearance and interview conducted by Service Alberta.
