our vision

The Canadian Home Builders' Association Central Okanagan is built on a vision of housing excellence. We provide industry leadership that creates a professional, affordable and profitable housing environment.

Our history

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 over 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 CO 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.

The Canadian Home Builders' Association is one association representing the residential construction industry and serving our members at three levels - locally, provincially and nationally. All levels work closely together - when you join the CHBA CO, you automatically become a member at the local, provincial and national levels.
