To modernize its processes and improve timeliness of decisions, we have launched the Surface Rights E-Filing Portal.

Highlights include:

  • fast, easy to navigate, and user-friendly
  • clear design with a client-focused layout and customized dashboard
  • safe, secure, and backed by the Government of Alberta
  • streamlines the repeat application submission process

Future upgrades

Coming soon – Automated acknowledgment of applications upon submission.

Other information
