Legal Name Changes
To legally change your name you must submit an application to Vital Statistics. Come into Southland Registrations and pick up the application. Fingerprints must also be submitted. If the person whose name is being changed is under 18, the fingerprint form
does not have to be done.

The applicant must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • A resident of Alberta
  • Applying to change one or more of the following:
    • Their own name
    • Current spouse's/adult interdependent partner's name
    • Their child's/ward's name
  • Not applying to change:
    • A deceased person's name
    • Their spouse's/adult interdependent partner's child's name when the applicant is not the other parent, by birth or adoption, of the child or the applicant does not have custody/guardianship of the child.

Steps to obtain a Legal name change:

  1. Come to the Southland Registrations office with personal identification and completed application form.
  2. Provide our staff with fingerprint form (if required) and any supporting documentation. Supporting documents may include:
    • Proof of legal name/proof of birth

    • Proof of annulled marriage
    • Proof of death of a spouse/partner/parent
    • Proof of custody
    • Proof of guardianship
