Overview

The Alberta commercial rent survey is an opportunity for commercial landlords and tenants (businesses) to share challenges they face as we work to improve supports for Albertans and Alberta businesses.

Responses to this survey will help us support Albertans and Alberta businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will use the information to learn more about:

  • the types of issues businesses and landlords are experiencing
  • how many businesses and landlords are affected
  • whether businesses and landlords have been able to access available supports
