Condominium permit application

This information pertains to existing buildings or buildings that are under construction, when applying for separately titled dwelling units, commercial units or parking stalls.

Step 1: Review the rules and fees for your project


When can you apply?

You can apply 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​.

In person
Once you have gathered all required documents, you can apply for your permit in person by visiting the Planning Services Centre. To skip the line, book an appointment.

After you apply

  • The application will be reviewed, circulated, and then forwarded to the Development Authority for approval.
  • The Development Authority approves and forwards the application to the City Clerks department for endorsement. This is the final step in the municipal process, where we finalize the Certificate of Municipal Authority.
  • We will notify the applicant that the application is complete, and is ready to be registered with Alberta Land Titles.
  • 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.
