Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Home Reconstruction
The Government of Alberta is committed to improving:
- consumer protection and recourse options,
- builder accountability, and
- quality of residential construction.
Alberta’s system of building codes, mandatory home warranty and the new builder information disclosure requirements for the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) help to keep Albertans safe and protect their investments.
The builder information requirements will help residents make more informed decisions when selecting a builder to reconstruct their home.
Builders must complete the Residential Builder Declaration form and submit it to the New Home Buyer Protection Office before they can get a building permit. More details about the requirements can be found on the Information for Builders page.
Information collected about builders will be visible on the Municipal Affairs RMWB Builder Registry.
The new requirements come into force June 30, 2016. The applicable Act and Regulations may be viewed here.
