Forms and Fees
Vital Statistics administers Alberta's Vital Statistics Act, Marriage Act, and Change of Name Act and regulations. These three acts regulate the registration of all vital events that occur in Alberta such as births, stillbirths, deaths, adoptions, marriages, and changes of name. Vital Statistics also provides statistical information to governments and approved health related agencies for the purpose of data exchange, comparisons and research.
In addition, the Vital Statistics office is responsible for the registration of religious organizations and clergy for the purpose of performing marriages, marriage commissioner appointments, providing burial permits, and disinter/reinter permits. The office also processes delayed registration events and amendments to event records.
Most Vital Statistics' services are provided through the registry agent network which include the issuance of marriage licences as well as applications for birth, marriage and death certificates, and photocopies of a registration of birth, stillbirth, marriage and death.
