Thank you for making people aware of Canadian Home Builders’ Association. Are we people need to get any clearance from CHBA to build a new house.
Hi Dave, CHBA is a membership association with focus on education, industry information, advocacy and networking. We’re not a regulating body. In BC, home builders need to be licensed through BC Housing’s Licensing and Consumer Services branch (www.bchousing.org). Even if you aren’t a contractor, but wanting to build your own house you still need to contact BC Housing to obtain an Owner Builder License. Every province has slightly different regulations on that, so if you’re in a different province it’s a good idea to look into the requirements.
