About the CRC

The Canadian Renovators’ Council (CRC) addresses the professional interests of CHBA’s renovator members, and the issues impacting their businesses. CRC is focused on continuing to add to the value of Association membership for professional renovators.

The Council’s work also includes monitoring government policies ranging from taxation and regulations to combatting the underground economy. 

CRC addresses technical issues relevant to home renovation in collaboration with CHBA’s Technical Research Committee, such as building codes and standards; and on professional development and recognition for renovation professionals in collaboration with CHBA’s Professional Development Committee.

CRC Management Committee is made up of provincial HBA representatives plus a representative of the RenoMark™ program. The full CRC includes additional representation from various government agencies and the building materials retail sector.

CRC provides policy advice to CHBA Board of Directors.
