How to Apply

We can assist you with your application at any of our Drayden registry offices! If you are currently part of an income support program, you are likely automatically enrolled but we can complete a separate application for you if you are unsure.

To apply, visit your local Drayden Registry with the following information:

  • Valid Identification
    • Government of Alberta ID (Driver’s licence or ID card) or
    • Other identification (e.g. passport, secure First Nations status card, Métis Nation of Alberta card) and proof of residency (e.g. utility, gas or cable bill, bank statement)
  • Social Insurance Number
  • Banking Information (void cheque or a pre-authorized debit form for direct deposit) if electronic funds transfer is requested. If banking information is not provided, there will be a slight delay on payment as you will receive a cheque in the mail.

To apply on behalf of a spouse or partner, you will need their Social Insurance Number.

To apply for one or more dependants, you will need their name(s) and date(s) of birth.
