Who We Are

Since 1943, the Canadian Home Builders' Association (CHBA) has been "the voice of Canada's residential construction industry." Representing one of the largest industry sectors in Canada, our membership is made up of some 8,500 companies – including home builders, renovators, land developers, trade contractors, product and material manufacturers, building product suppliers, lending institutions, insurance providers, and service professionals. 

What We Do

CHBA seeks a strong and positive role for the housing industry in Canada’s economy and in the life and development of our communities. In addressing this goal, we support the business success of our members. We work to ensure Canadians have access to homes that meet their needs at a price they can afford to pay, and that the interests of homebuyers and homeowners are understood by governments. And we provide information to Canadians to help them become more informed and confident when they buy a new home, or hire a renovator to improve their existing one.

How We Work

CHBA is one association working at three levels – nationally, provincially and locally. Our members join a Local Home Builders’ Association, and automatically become members at the provincial and national levels of the Association.

Each level of the Association works with the government at their level. And because many housing issues involve multiple levels of government, we frequently collaborate to ensure a consistent approach towards real solutions that will benefit consumers.

CHBA is a federal not-for-profit organization governed by an elected Board of Directors and a volunteer executive, supported by our professional staff. 

At the national level, our system of Committees’ and Councils brings together builders and industry experts from across the country to share information and ideas, and to formulate recommendations to governments to improve the quality and affordability of homes for Canadians.

If your company is interested in becoming a CHBA member, contact the Local Home Builders' Association in your area.
