Alberta to offer seniors 25 per cent discount for registry services

EDMONTON — The Alberta government says it’s making good on its promise to offer seniors a 25 per cent discount for registry services.

It says the move is expected to benefit more than 725,000 Albertans 65 and older.

The discount can be applied to vehicle registration, driver’s licences, standard plates and marriage licences.

The discount is also to be available for services purchased online.

The United Conservative Party government estimates in its most recent budget that the discount will mean annual savings for seniors of up to $16.5 million to $20 million.

The seniors’ discount is to come into place Monday.
