Builder Licensing - New Home Buyer Protection Amendment Act
In its aim to strengthen protection of consumers who purchase a new home, the New Home Buyer Protection Amendment Act, if passed, will create a Builder Licensing Program. The Bill is anticipated to come into force December 2017.

The Program will require potential builders to first obtain a licence in order to build as a requirement for obtaining warranty coverage and building permits in Alberta. To ensure construction activities are not disrupted, the program will be phased in at the enforcement date with full implementation planned for May 1, 2018.
