Condominium Manager Licensing

RECA will begin regulating condominium managers on December 1, 2021, and all individuals and companies that provide condominium management services in Alberta must be licensed by this date.

Individuals can now apply to become eligible for a condominium manager licence. The eligibility application is the first step before you can apply for a licence.

On October 12, 2021, condominium manager licensing will begin and more information will be posted to this webpage. Read more about how the condominium manager licence will work and how it’s different from property management (please note the information on that webpage is subject to change due to realities outside of RECA’s control, such as third-party course providers not having education ready by December 1, 2021).
