Alberta and Saskatchewan

An act similar to that passed in British Columbia was passed in the Territories November 21, 1903. The affidavit must be made in the Territories November 21, 1903. The affidavit must be made in the Territories in the office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court for the Judicial District in which she resides, or in the office of a Deputy Clerk, if she resides in his District, instead of before one of His Majesty’s Justices of the Peace as in British Columbia.

Cap. 19, Statutes of Alberta, sec. 13. Illegitimate children shall inherit from the mother as if they were legitimate, and through the mother, if dead, any land which she would, if living, have taken by purchase, gift, devise or descent from any other person.
