Your Rights When Renting: Human rights in Alberta
This is a collection of resources funded by the Alberta Human Rights Education and Multicultural Fund. The Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta (CPLEA) has created resources for multicultural communities to learn about their rental rights under the Alberta Human Rights Act. These resources use real-life scenarios to explain what landlords are allowed to do and not do under the Act. The resources also explain what remedies are available and how individuals can access these remedies.
