Default How long to receive Alberta Health Card?

Hello!

I will be moving to Calgary shortly and would like to know how long it should normally take to receive my Alberta Health Card (after applying in person).

I realise that I am covered from Day-1. However, my question is regarding receiving the actual card. Do they print it for you on the spot? Or do they mail it to your address and how long does it normally take?

Does anyone from Alberta (who moved from outside Canada), have any personal experience with this?

Yeah. Take the C-Train downtown, get off at 4th St station. Walk to the Alberta Health place. Take a ticket. Wait for about an hour. Present appropriate paperwork. Receive piece of paper that says "Alberta Health Card". Off you go back on the C-Train.
