RTDRS offices are temporarily closed to the public.
RTDRS is conducting all hearings by phone. Parties to a previously scheduled in-person hearing will be contacted about the change. Parties wishing to proactively provide their phone number for an upcoming hearing are asked to phone 403-297-8550 and leave a message with their name, case number and phone number.
RTDRS continues to accept applications through the online RTDRS eFiling Service.
Applications for possession or termination of the tenancy agreement will be given priority in the RTDRS hearing schedule. Non-urgent applications, such as for damages or return of the security deposit, are being received, but there may be a delay in scheduling while COVID-19 is being managed.
