An individual who has a Veteran attribute assigned to his or her motor vehicle profile is entitled to obtain a Veteran plate for a personal vehicle, commercial farm vehicle or motorcycle. There is no additional cost for the plate beyond the cost of registration.
The Royal Canadian Legion (RCL), Alberta/NWT Command must approve all applications before you can be issued a Veterans Plate. Once you have an approved application form from the legion, you may request the plate at Registries Plus.
An Application for a Veterans’ Licence Plate can be obtained from:
Alberta/NWT Command Veterans’ Plate
The Royal Canadian Legion
2020 15th Street NW
Calgary, Alberta T2M 3N8
Or on their website.
When the veteran passes away, the veteran’s licence plate may be retained only as a memento but can no longer be used on a vehicle.
Support Our Troops Plates
The Support Our Troops plates were introduced in 2012 to honour past and current members of the Armed Forces. You don’t have to be a veteran or a member of the armed forces in order to purchase a Support Our Troops plate – the Support Our Troops plates are a great way to show moral and financial support for our Armed Forces because the majority of proceeds go toward the Support Our Troops program which provides financial support for current and past members of the armed forces and their families.
The cost is a one-time fee of $84.45 and your account must be in good standing (no outstanding fines) in order to purchase one. This cost does not include the cost of registration. The Support Our Troops Plate can be renewed just like a regular plate. Like regular plates, Support Our Troops plates cannot be transferred to a new owner. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a Support Our Troops plate to anyone other than the registrant.
