In Alberta, a person must be a licensed land agent to negotiate with a landowner for certain surface or right of way agreements. Typically these agreements are for drilling and mining operations, laying of pipelines, construction of power lines and the construction of roads. The agreements are for interests in land that, in the absence of an agreement, could be taken without the owner’s consent.

Land Agents are licensed and regulated under the Land Agents Licensing Act. The Act also provides for the establishment of an advisory committee, setting controls over negotiations, dealing with complaints about land agents and the exemption of certain people from the application of the Act. The administration and control of the Act is presently under the department of Labour and Immigration. Currently the Act is administered by the Land Agent Licensing Office in Edmonton.

The Land Agents Licensing Act has one regulation – the Land Agents Licensing Regulation. The Land Agents Licensing Regulation outlines the requirements to obtain a license, sets standards of conduct for land agents to follow, and establishes certain procedures that must be followed when negotiating for an interest in land.
