Step 1: Review the rules and fees for your project

When can you apply?

An application can be made at the building's framing stage or later.

With new construction buildings, the development permit should be released, the building permit should be issued, and the building should be at the framing stage. Receipt of the development completion permit confirms your project conforms with approvals.

With existing buildings, you can apply anytime. If the building is complete for more than two years, we will conduct an inspection to determine if there are any non-conformance issues. If there are, we will provide a report advising how the issues can be resolved. If the building is over 10 years old, we will determine the requirements for an occupancy permit. An occupancy permit is required under Section 12(6) of the Province of Alberta Condominium Property Act​.

After you apply

  • An address list is forwarded to our addressing department, and Alberta Land Titles forwards a copy of the approved plan to our Infrastructure and Information Services department so it can be added to the corporate database.

Step 4: Inspections
