Builder Licensing

Development (1)

As of December 1, 2017, new homes constructed in Alberta must be built by a licensed builder. All residential builders are required to have a builder licence in order to construct new homes.

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments consumers make. Builder licensing is intended to reduce the risks prospective home owners face by establishing a licensing system, providing consumers with information on builders and creating provisions to remove or suspend builders when necessary to protect home owners from negligent or unscrupulous businesses.

Builder licensing applies to anyone constructing new homes, including condominiums and large multi-family homes, as well as renovations when a residential construction project requires new home warranty coverage.

The Alberta government has created a Builder Registry as an online source of information to research Alberta’s licensed residential builders. The registry is designed to assist consumers to make informed decisions when selecting a builder. Red Deer County uses the online registry to confirm status and class of licence, before issuing a building permit.

The directory provides information about residential builders, including:

  • Builder name and contact information
  • Location of builds
  • Names of directors and owners
  • Any associated building companies
  • Licence status and class
  • Any previous licence(s) held

To view the Builder Registry go to: https://residentialprotection.alberta.ca/public-registry/

The new registry also includes the Property Search for the New Home Warranty program which was implemented on February 1, 2014.
