Alberta’s corporate identity is a program that identifies the Government of Alberta’s facilities, programs and services. The program |
includes the Alberta signature and the emblems of Alberta, including the province’s coat of arms and the flag.
In this website, you will find information on how to use the various elements of the Alberta corporate identity. The website is constantly
being updated to reflect the changes and additions to the Corporate Identity.
Because we need to ensure the logos are used appropriately, they are only available for download to Communications staff on sites
that are password protected.
To get the files you need, your best course is to work with your Communications branch, who can ensure you get the files you need,
along with some guidance on how to place them appropriately.
Suppliers should work through their Government contact who can request logos on their behalf from Communications.
Government of Alberta staff can download some of the files directly from the GoA staff only website. Be sure to
use "goa\" before
your username for access.
Those with access can download the files that are available by logging in to download files.
Should you have any questions you can send an e-mail to email@example.com.
The new Alberta signature
In May 2012 the Government of Alberta logo was revised. The new Alberta signature, as shown in the header above, is now the official
logo of the Government of Alberta.
The Corporate Identity manual is constantly being updated and will be posted as changes are developed. If you have specific
questions regarding any of the content in the Corporate Identity Manual you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
