Birth Certificates

Your child’s proof of age and legal name and proof of your address are required to register your child.

For proof of age and legal name, we require a birth certificate, passport or citizenship document. If you do not have a birth certificate and your child was born in Alberta, you can download a form HERE, fill it out and take it to the local registries office to order one.

You must provide an Alberta address to register for school and that address must be located within the boundaries served by the school you are attending. If you do not have an Alberta mailing address, you may be asked to provide a utility bill, rental agreement or other similar document as proof that you reside in Alberta. 

If we do not receive this documentation, we may not receive funding from Alberta Education for your child. The online registration form will allow you to upload a picture or scan of your child's birth certificate, passport or citizenship documentation. If you experience difficulty in uploading the documentation, please bring it into your school and our administrative assistants will be happy to scan it and add it to your registration information.

If you are having any difficulty accessing our registration form or have questions about filling out the form, please call the school your child will be attending. The school's administrative assistant will be more than happy to assist you with completing the registration process.
