If you're unable to walk more than 50 metres, you may be eligible for a disabled parking placard, allowing you to park in specially marked parking areas close to entrances.
To apply for a disabled parking placard, please visit any AMA centre. When you do, be sure to bring:
- A piece of government-issued photo ID.
- A completed Parking Placards for Persons with Disabilities application*. The completed form must be signed by a physician, physiotherapist or occupational therapist.
- Your AMA membership card.
If you are unable to apply in person, you can send someone with a Letter of Authorization form* (pdf) to apply for, or renew, on your behalf.
*To view these Government of Alberta forms in Chrome and Safari, save the PDF and open in Acrobat.
If you have never held an Alberta driver’s licence or been entered into the Alberta Registries System, the person applying on your behalf will also need two items of your personal identification (birth certificate, passport, citizenship card), and one item that shows your proof of residency, such as a utility bill or land title document.
If you are a disabled traveller visiting Alberta, you can use a valid parking placard from your home city or country. Alternatively, you can apply for a temporary Alberta placard. Contact AMA Registries for more information.
