About the TRC

CHBA’s Technical Research Committee (TRC) is the Association’s forum for all things related to building code, standards and regulations affecting how homes are constructed.  TRC monitors and provides industry input into code and standard development.

TRC also works to identify technical problems being experienced by the industry, to achieve consensus on their priority, to mobilize private and public R&D resources to resolve these problems and to communicate solutions to members.

TRC is comprised of a Management Committee made up of provincial HBA representatives, and forum members representing more than 30 organizations including government research agencies, codes and standards organizations, allied industry associations, colleges, university research networks, home warranty providers and members at large. 

TRC’s Management Committee provides policy advice to CHBA Board of Directors.
