Personal Property Registry (“PPR”) captures, through an electronic registration process,
information about the existence of security interest and summary information about the
persons and personal property affected by them. Documents, such as security
agreements, support the registration but must remain with the secured parties.
PPR is not the place to register an interest in land. In Alberta, interests in land are
registered at the Land Titles Office (LTO) located at 710 4 Ave. S.W. Calgary, Alberta.
Types of Registrations
These registrations can only be registered by Civil Enforcement Agents. For more
