As of January 1, 2018, landlords can no longer discriminate on the basis of age in Alberta. Changes to the Alberta Human Rights Act are now in force.
The changes mean rental buildings can no longer be designated “Adult only” or have age restrictions unless they are designed seniors-only (age 55+).
Condos with existing age-restrictions have been given a 15-year transition period while all new condos will no longer be able to discriminate on the basis of age unless designated seniors-only.
If you have questions about your right to accommodation for children in rental buildings, or to inquire about filing a human rights complaint for the denial of rental accommodation on the grounds of age please visit the Alberta Human Rights Commission website.
