Surrogate Digital Service - Updated process for submitting wills and testamentary documents for storage

Mar 25, 2024


Commencing April 8, 2024, all Wills and testamentary documents for Surrogate Digital Service (SDS) applications must be sent directly to the Wills Repository in Edmonton by Registered Mail to:

Attention: File Room - Wills Repository
Court of King’s Bench
1A Sir Winston Churchill Square
Edmonton, AB T5J 0R2

This change will ensure consistency of process across the province, reduce the risk of lost documents, and speed up processing times.

Wills and testamentary documents will no longer be accepted:

  • At the counter;
  • In a surrogate drop box;
  • At Judicial Centres other than Edmonton;
  • If delivered by courier or court runner.

Documents sent by any method other than Registered Mail will be refused, and Counsel will be responsible for arranging courier pickup to retrieve them.
