New requirements for residential builders come into effect on December 1, 2017. Going forward, new homes in Alberta must be built by somebody with a valid license or an Owner Builder Authorization. This will be required in order to register new homes and to obtain building permits for new homes.

Licensing will apply to anyone constructing new residential units, including condominiums and large multi-family homes. Individuals who want to build their own home can do so with a valid Authorization whether they choose to build with or without warranty.

To minimize disruption to the industry, the program will be phased in over a few months, beginning December 1 until full implementation on May 1, 2018. Builders who have been active in Alberta over the previous two years may receive a Provisional Licence (temporary licence) on December 1, based on their track record with related consumer protection and safety legislation. This licence will expire on May 1, 2018. Full licence applications will be available online beginning December 1, 2017.

All licensed builders will be posted on an interim registry, located at Municipalities can verify the status of a builder by checking this registry. Licensed builders will also receive a Certificate of Licence in the mail, and the Registrar’s Certificate of Approval will also reflect licence status after December 1. A full public registry will be released in the spring, 2018.
