The AIMG Program is committed to providing a professional and safe learning and working environment, free of abuse and threats of abuse. Prospective applicants, applicants, candidates and Externs of the AIMG Program are required to behave in a professional manner. Honest, respectful communication and correspondence with AIMG Program staff and affiliates – in person, on the telephone, in emails, and any other form of interaction – before, during and after the assessment process are expected.
Prospective applicants and applicants understand that they are taking part in a confidential professional assessment process. Each individual is personally and professionally responsible to maintain the integrity of the assessment and their profession by conforming to the rules of conduct stipulated by the AIMG Program, and as applicable, those of College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.
NOTE: Visitors to the AIMG Program office must use the front entrance at HMRB G06. Access to staff offices is restricted. Unauthorized entry to staff offices is strictly prohibited.
In applying to participate in the AIMG Program, each applicant agrees to abide by all regulations, as well as oral and written instructions controlling the conduct of each stage of the AIMG Program assessment process. These regulations are intended to preserve the integrity of the AIMG Program by providing processes that yield valid and reliable results.
Applicants must not provide false information or make false statements on or in connection with application forms or any other AIMG Program-related documents. This includes all information related to any claims of Alberta residency, and all information related to the online application and supporting documents.
AIMG Program candidates must abide by all regulations, as well as oral and written instructions controlling the conduct of each stage of the AIMG Program assessment process. Candidates must behave in a professional manner and refrain from irregular behaviours, including cheating.
Irregular behaviours include any actions that subvert or attempt to subvert the assessment process including but not limited to examinations.
Candidates will be observed at all times while they are taking examinations. These observations will include direct observation by invigilators and AIMG Program staff. Invigilators and staff may not necessarily inform candidates of their observations, but invigilators and staff are required to document any irregular behaviours observed and report their observations to the AIMG Program Examination Committee for action.
Applicants and candidates acknowledge that their failure to behave in a professional manner and to adhere to the rules of conduct stipulated by the AIMG Program may be deemed sufficient cause for termination of their participation in the current AIMG Program assessment cycle, as well as possible prevention from participation in future AIMG Program assessment cycles.

Supporting documents requiring notarization need to be signed before a Notary Public for the Province of Alberta. A Commissioner for Oaths will not suffice. Commissioners are not able to verify the accuracy of documents or certify true copies.
A Notary Public is governed by the Notaries Public Act, provincial legislation that summarizes their duties and responsibilities.
The duties of a Notary Public include (among others):
Before notarizing any document, a Notary Public must carefully review the document to ensure that it is not a legally ineffective or obviously irregular document that should not be notarized. Notarization of such a document is strictly prohibited, as it may lead parties to believe incorrectly that it is legitimate and has some effect in law.
Please note that if any lay Notary Public in Alberta has any concern that a document might be legally ineffective and/or obviously irregular, the document should not be notarized, and the requesting party should be referred to a member of the Law Society of Alberta.
The embossed stamp or seal must state that it is from a Notary Public in the province of Alberta.
For final year medical students completing their studies outside of Canada who do not have access to an Alberta notary ONLY – the AIMG Program accepts certification of the Applicant Identity Verification Form and proof of Canadian status documents from the officials below if it is within their mandate and they offer these services:
In the United States only, a Commissioner of Oaths (provided that they have an official government agency appointment and an ENGLISH OR FRENCH stamp or seal)
