Local CHBA Affiliates
On behalf of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia, I want to welcome you to this site and encourage you to learn more about our local associations located throughout British Columbia and how we collectively work on behalf of our members.
The Canadian Home Builders' Association is a three-tiered association representing the residential construction industry at the local, provincial and national level with over 1,500 members in British Columbia and a total of 8,500 throughout Canada.
When you join one of our affiliated local associations, you become a member of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association at three levels. This provides a tremendous advantage for your business and an opportunity to also be a part of a national association that is "the voice of Canada's residential construction industry" — one of the most vital and enterprising industries in Canada.
Our members come from every area of Canada's housing industry - new home builders, renovators, land developers, trade contractors, product and material manufacturers, building product suppliers, lending institutions, insurance providers, service professionals and others. The advantage to a three-tiered association provides members with representation and benefits at each level.
- Locally: Municipal government liaison, monthly meetings, industry seminars, professional development, marketing campaigns, awards programs…members have many opportunities to have their voice heard by government, make business contacts, stay informed and build recognition with consumers.
- Provincially: The Association deals with a wide range of provincial government regulations and policies that affect members, their businesses and their customers—from codes and standards, to health and safety, infrastructure financing, the environment and consumer protection. Provincial conferences and awards programs give members an opportunity to meet and network with peers from across the province.
- Nationally: At the national level, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) represents and serves the entire membership from coast to coast including eligibility to enter the National Awards for Housing Excellence or attend the annual national conference where you can network and meet other builders and renovators from across Canada.
In a constantly evolving business environment, our association is committed to serving members and our industry. We keep a constant eye on the regulatory environment and the marketplace. We develop clear, practical positions on issues that matter to the industry and our consumers. We make sure that our voice is heard, loud and clear, and that we reach influence decision-makers at all levels of government.
We act as a forum for information sharing for our local and provincial HBAs and members, we constantly report to our members on important local, provincial and national issues, and our annual national conference brings members together from across the country.
If you are interested in becoming a member, contact the Local Home Builders' Association in your area and connect with others who recognize the importance of an association that is represented locally, provincially and nationally.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member.
