Shawnessy Registry


As of May 14th, 2020 Due to the unfortunate Covid-19 Pandemic happening with in our Province, many Registries have closed until further notice given by the Alberta Government to safely reopen. Shawnessy Licence & Registry has stayed open to the public, while maintaining strict policies in regards to Covid-19 and social distancing. Due to the fact that we were one of the registries that decided to stay open, our wait times have grown upwards to 4 hours and more. Our join the line option on our website and in our office will now be disabled as we attempt to find a different solution to serve customers on a first come first serve basis. Please be patient with us as we attempt to go back to a line up system. As we are all in this together please be mindful that we are essential workers and within this registry are doing our absolute best to quickly go through the line and assist you with your needs.

Please note, if you are displaying any symptoms while in our office, you will be asked to leave and contact 811. If you have travelled in the last 14 days, the government has asked that you self isolate upon arrival. Should you attend our office during your self isolation time, we will be asking you return at the end of your 14-day mandatory isolation period. Our mandate is to ensure our frontline staff are taken care of and not put in unnecessary risk.

Service Alberta has approved certain services to be done electronically if attending the registry is not feasible. Please email us at and include what type of service you are requiring and we will have the online specialist walk you through the requirements.

We thank you in advance for continuing to keep our staff and families safe.
