Age restricted condos are soon to be a thing of the past in Alberta.  As of January 1, 2018 age discimination is now prohibited. See the full Notice of Changes Here. 

Relating to Real Estate this means :

Seniors-Only Housing

#1 Seniors-only housing will continue to be allowed so that older Albertans can choose to live together in a community of people at a similar life stage.

#2 The minimum age cut-off for seniors-only housing is 55 years of age.  Communities can set age restrictions that are older than 55 as well.

#3 This applies to housing where all units are reserved for one or more people, at least one of whom is 55.

Existing age-restricted condominiums, co-operative housing units and mobile home sites

#1 The Act protects members of the public against discrimination by condominium corporations, Co-operatives, and mobile home landlords, which are included under the protected area of services.

#2 Existing age-restricted condominiums, co-operatives, and mobile home sites will be allowed for a 15-year transition period, which end on December 31, 2032.

#3 Existing age-restricted condominiums, co-operatives and mobile home sites may change to seniors-only housing during the transition period, even though there may still be residents who do not meet the new age restriction.

*The transition period applies to condominium units, co-operative housing units and mobile home sites whether they are owner- occupied or rented.
