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 their
province. See your Provincial Home Builders’ Association for more.
At the national level, the CHBA represents and serves the entire membership from coast to coast.
CHBA is your voice in Ottawa on big issues that affect your business, your customers, and all Canadians.
As a member of the national Association representing one of Canada’s
most economically important industries, you join 8,500 other member
companies from coast to coast in having a strong voice in Ottawa. This
ensures that CHBA can effectively fight for a business environment that
gives your company the best chance to succeed and prosper.
CHBA makes sure the Prime Minister, Ministers, Members of Parliament and
federal government officials know that our industry represents over
$128 billion in economic activity and over 1 million jobs from coast to
coast, in every community.
CHBA’s success can be seen in recent federal budgets through measures
that help homeowners, home buyers, and work to keep the home building
industry, which is so important to the entire economy, healthy and
strong. From taxation to employment insurance, mortgage rules to tax
credits, labour market information to key housing statistics, research
and development to codes and regulations, and so much more, CHBA
actively advocates on the housing issues that affect our industry and
all Canadians every day.
We speak out on the things that matter when it comes to federal
government decisions affecting our industry, your company, your clients,
and the entire economy. Working effectively at all three levels, and
collaborating with other industry groups with common interests, gives us
the strength to get results.
In addition to representing your interests to governments, CHBA provides
you with national resources and leadership in many other important
areas that can help your business succeed:
