Replacement identification


Womanspace provides support to women who need identification for themselves or their child such as a Birth Certificate, Alberta ID Card, or Driver’s License, covering the cost of one piece of identification per client.


Our ID services are currently by appointment only. Please leave a message at 403-329-8338 or email and one of our volunteers will get back to you as soon as possible.


Clients will be provided with a verification letter which can be redeemed at Astro Insurance & Registry (100-542 7th St. S, Lethbridge).


Please note:

  • To obtain a copy of your birth certificate you will need to show photo ID. If you do not have ID you can bring someone who has a valid photo ID that has personally known you for one year or longer to vouch for you. Birth Certificates can only be ordered for individuals born in Alberta.

  • To renew an Alberta picture identification that has been expired for more than six months, you will need to show your birth certificate as well as a piece of mail showing your current Alberta address, dated within the last 90 days. If your photo identification has not expired you can provide 4 pieces of mail, or another government-issued ID with a piece of mail.



Other forms of replacement Identification can be obtained free of charge:

  • There is no cost to replace your Alberta Health card. Call 310-0000 and when prompted, dial 780-427-1432 and answer the questions. Alberta Health will mail you a replacement card.

  • There is no cost to apply for an Indian Status Card (passport/status card). Applications require a birth certificate and a photo ID (originals only, photocopies are not permitted for these documents), and one other piece of government identification (such as an Alberta Health card or Social Insurance Card). Note: Since April 2020, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) has extended the validity date of status cards and Temporary Confirmation of Registration Documents due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This extension ended on May 1, 2022.
