Are you a foreigner looking to purchase property in Alberta? On January 1, 2023, the Canadian federal government introduced a two-year ban on the purchase of residential property in Canada by non-Canadians. As a result, there are additional steps and considerations that must be taken into account when buying a home in Alberta as a foreigner. The full guidelines are available on the Government of Canada website. Further, ensure you obtain legal advice prior to purchasing a home in Alberta.
