Prentice Government Cancels Licence Plate Redesign


Premier Jim Prentice today announced that the Government of Alberta is cancelling any further work on new licence plate designs for motor vehicles in Alberta.

“Albertans want us to deal with priorities they have identified in health care, education, infrastructure and seniors. Changing the design of Alberta’s licence plates is not one of them. We are going to invest our time, effort and resources on the clearly identified priorities of Albertans.”

The cost of producing and rolling out new licence plates for the 4.8 million vehicles in the province would have been $15 million, which is better used elsewhere.
