Every province and territory has its own laws about housing, including renting an apartment or a house or buying a house. One condition that is the same across the country is that it is against the law to refuse to rent or sell to you because of your race, creed, religion, colour, family status, or sexual orientation.

► What are some of the advantages of renting a home?

Many newcomers to Alberta start off renting a house or apartment. Renting a home should provide you with a safe place where you can begin your new life in Alberta. If you want to buy a home, renting can also give you the time to look for a place to buy without feeling pressured into making a quick decision.
