Red Earth Creek received in-person registry services in October as part of a pilot project to improve access to registry services for rural Albertans.
According to a news release from the provincial government, the goal is to determine the feasibility of offering mobile, in-person registry services to other communities in Alberta.
“All Albertans, no matter where they live, deserve to have convenient access to registry services,” says Brian Malkinson, Minister of Service Alberta. “This pilot lets us test out an innovative way to improve rural Albertans’ access to the important services registries provide.”
Lesser Slave Lake MLA Danielle Larivee, also quoted in the release, says, “Living in the north, I know the long trips my constituents sometimes have to take…. And that’s why I’m so proud our government is offering solutions.”
The mobile office offered services in Red Earth for three days in the middle of October.
