There is a 2 year statute in Alberta that bars creditors and collection agencies from suing an account, which can affect the odds of recovery. Any debt that is over 2 years since date of last payment, or acknowledgement of debt, cannot be pursued through the civil court systems in Alberta. This is why many large balance debtors will try and stall things out over 2 years so they are immune to legal action.
There are 2 main civil court systems that can be used to extract debt in Alberta. The Alberta Small Claims Courthas a cap of $50K and the Court of Queen’s Bench handles larger amounts. Alberta also has a Residential Tenancy Systemfor residential tenants and landlords.
