When we can travel again, I will be going to the UK, buying a used Golf and touring Europe for a few months. I want to bring the RHD car back to Alberta.

Reading the rules it seems to be OK but there is a note about headlight alignment on RHD cars. Has anyone imported a car from the UK had problems getting it registered ? I plan to get one 15 years or older.

Many thanks

I would think that you would need to replace the headlights with LHD units. Most headlights have the cutoff built into them and you can't adjust that out. The cutoff on my 08 MKV is slanted from upper right to lower left to create a dark spot on the LHD side for on-comming traffic. Adjustments do not affect this cutoff angle.
