NOTE:

Students are considered to be residents of Alberta, if Alberta is the last province/territory they lived in for 12 consecutive months. The time spent as a full-time post-secondary student in Alberta does not count towards the length of time required to establish residency in Alberta. If a student has spent time outside of Alberta doing volunteer activities, this time does not count against the student’s Alberta residency.

Any full-time student who does not meet any Canadian province or territory’s residency criteria may be considered an Alberta resident as long as the student is:

  • attending an Alberta educational institution, and
  • residing in Alberta during the study period.
