The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) is comprised of three levels: Local, Provincial and National. This structure fully represents a broad-based membership – such as the home building industry.
In September 2014, fully backed by support from the Provincial and National offices, CHBA-Central Vancouver Island and CHBA-Victoria members voted to unite into one strengthened association:
The Canadian Home Builders' Association – Vancouver Island (CHBA-VI) membership includes new home builders, renovators, developers, trades, manufacturers, suppliers, lenders and other professionals across Vancouver Island. Members commit to act with integrity and professionalism in all aspects of their company's operations.
The CHBA-VI's membership is a voluntary affiliation made up of building professionals who are committed to industry excellence. Through the Association, members have access to technical information as well as specialized education and training courses. CHBA also promotes a members' code of ethics that requires high standards in customer relations and business practices.
The CHBA-VI is a proud part of this national standard of excellence, servicing professionals and the communities of Vancouver Island.
At the May Members Meeting, we held the Annual Member Recognition Awards to recognize activeMembers in our Association who have donated their time and efforts to assist in organizing, sponsoring, promoting and strengthening our local CHBA!

Home Builders and Government of Canada announce partnership to renew Get it in Writing!
March 5, 2015
HALIFAX – March 5, 2015 –The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) is pleased to announce an agreement with the Government of Canada to renew its successful public information program, Get it in Writing!, for the next three years.
This industry-lead initiative provides homeowners with advice on how to hire a contractor, and the dangers of dealing with illegal ‘cash’ operators.
“Cash operators threaten the financial security of homeowners, the physical integrity of their homes, harm the businesses of legitimate renovators, and undermine the well-being of all Canadians by evading taxes that support the government services we all depend on,” says CHBA CEO Kevin Lee.

The BC Government has announced an enhanced licensing system for residential builders. It establishes new qualifications and continuing education requirements as a condition of renewing a builder licence and other changes.
The seven core training courses offered by CHBA BC have been recognized as meeting these new mandatory education requirements and the Association is an approved training provider under the new regulation.
"As a home builder, I strongly support this progressive action by the BC government," stated Simon Howse, President of CHBA BC. "It promotes professionalism in our industry, and provides assurance to consumers that their new homes will be well-built", he added. "Our industry also appreciates that the new requirements will be phased in, to allow our members time to ensure they meet the new standard."
