Builder Licensing

Beginning December 1, 2017, new requirements were brought into effect for residential builders in Alberta. All residential builders will be required to have a provincial builder's licence in order to construct new homes.

Municipal Affairs consulted with Albertans earlier in 2017; amendments were made to the New Home Buyer Protection Act to establish licensing requirements for residential builders. Legislation and regulations came into force December 1, 2017.

Builder licensing will apply to anyone constructing new homes, including condominiums and large multi-family homes, as well as renovations that impact more than 75% of a home's footprint.

For more information, see the FAQs from Municipal Affairs or contact them at builderlicensing@gov.ab.ca.
