Alberta Does Not Have A Standard Lease Template

Ontario residents moving to Alberta frequently ask "Does Alberta have a standard lease template?"

Unfortunately, Alberta does not have a standard lease template. Calgary and Edmonton also do not offer a standard lease template.

Comparing Ontario and Alberta

In Ontario, every rental property is required to use the government's free Residential Tenancy Agreement template. Ontario landlords who do not use the template are required to update their leases to use the template within 30 days of tenants requesting their lease use the template.

Ontario requires the standard lease agreement to ensure that leases do not have illegal terms like prohibiting pets.

Alberta has some tenant protection laws but does not require landlords use the same lease template.

More information about Alberta's tenancy laws is available on their website titled Landlords and Tenants - Rights and Responsibilities.
