Canada The larger MyAlberta eServices portal
Paying traffic and other tickets expands the list of online government services available to Albertans on the MyAlberta eServices portal. Other services available include driver’s licence and vehicle registration renewal reminders and security licences.
Until July 7, online fine payments were processed by the Association of Alberta Registry Agents and the Alberta Motor Association at a cost of $6 per transaction.
This new service will also free up court resources. The MyAlberta eServices portal will have real-time access to court data, which significantly reduces error rates and time spent by court staff making corrections. This time could be used to provide other court-related services to Albertans. ■
