The Canadian Home Builders’ Association is the one association that is looking after the residential construction industry!

A Winning Situation

Home building and to a large degree, related spin-off business account for a local economy’s well-being. For example, on Vancouver Island (VI), the construction industry is the sector credited with being the third largest employer.

If you feel you’re not getting your share of business, then perhaps you need to make some new contacts or get to know more reputable builders. You can do that and more by joining your local home builders association.

Local builders appreciate business associates who support the industry through CHBA membership and participation in its activities.

Every time a new home is built, it provides economic stimulus to the local economy. In addition to the cost of materials, the building lot, labour, equipment and other direct costs associated with the house itself, business is stimulated in the creation of new or bigger schools, churches, better highways, community facilities, expansion of utilities, etc. In addition, earnings are generated for many professional and service businesses every time a new home is built and sold.

By becoming a member of the CHBA, you’ll not only help to enhance your company’s financial health, but you will also contribute to your community’s economic prosperity.

It’s a win, win situation!

A Structure Built on Accomplishment

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association is comprised of three levels:  Local, Provincial and National.  This structure fully represents a broad-based membership – such as the home building industry.  Your local association is governed by an elected Board of Directors.  Committees are established to oversee specific issues or interests, such as education and training, technical advisory, government liaison, membership, community service and finance.

As an Active/Participating Member
You Help Support the Entire Structure.


CHBA-VI offers a full slate of services and activities that give members opportunities to market their products and services, network with fellow members, grow their business, build recognition and credibility, gain industry knowledge and play a valuable role in contributing to the future of our industry.


In addition to dealing with a range of provincial government regulations and policies, CHBA-BC organizes education and training programs for Association members.


CHBA keeps a constant eye on the regulatory environment & marketplace and develops clear, practical positions on issues to the industry and consumers.  It has advocated successfully on behalf of the Residential Construction Industry Since 1943.
