Here are the rules for fossil collection in Alberta as laid out by the Alberta Federation of Rock Clubs. http://www.afrc.ca/AFRC%20Doc%20Legal%20Fossils%202.pdf It is possible to remove a fossil from Alberta if you go through the "Fossil Disposition" process. You submit an application and photo of the fossil and, assuming the find is not of major significance, you may be allowed to keep it. "When the Disposition Process is complete, the person becomes the legal owner of the ammonite shell, fossil or petrified wood approved for disposition. The person is now free to sell, trade, or alter the ammonite shell, fossil or petrified wood as they wish. It is important to remember that there may be federal export issues to address before the ammonite shell, fossil or petrified wood can be exported from Canada.
