You can apply right away but your parents must remain in Alberta for the first 12 months. The list of accepted documents should be online. Assume they will signup for a bank account. Banking information should have their address.Hi, have anyone's parents landed in Alberta and applied for health card? I know you can apply for it as soon as you land, but they won't have any address proof. What was used as the address proof (or just the COPR/Passport are enough)? They will live with me, so no lease or utility bills in their name. Bank statements can take more than a month to be mailed. Thanks.
