Standard – $146/hour, 3 weeks typically, some old jobs are still taking a year to finish, so averages do not yet apply.

As of Mar 2016, most registrations are happening in 3 weeks. We are still trying to get some old reviews finished that have been ongoing for a year, but all new submissions are going much better. We remain optimistic about changes happening at ABSA and have seen much progress. We feel that companies that have abandoned Alberta should try again!
