 Part of making an informed decision when purchasing a new piece of farm equipment is checking to see if the dealer or distributor is licensed.
Farmers should be aware that if they are conducting business with an unlicensed farm implement dealer or distributor, they will not have any protection under the Farm Implement Act. All farm implement distributors and dealers operating within the province of Alberta must be licensed under the Farm Implement Act, which is administered by the FAO. This legislation provides consumers with protection on the purchase of new farm equipment.

Consumers can review the lists of licensed dealers and distributors here:
2018 List of Licensed Dealers

Each year licensed dealers and distributors are provided with physical licences to be displayed at their place of business.
