Home builders’ group merges Island offices

NANAIMO – The group amalgamated its Victoria and central Vancouver Island local associations into one association.

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of B.C. has built a stronger foundation on Vancouver Island.

The group amalgamated its Victoria and central Vancouver Island local associations into one association.

The merger offers members all the benefits of membership at three levels – local, provincial and national, including access to education and training, advocacy, Georgie Awards, SAM Awards and conferences while allowing for greater efficiencies at the local level.

“One of the benefits of our amalgamation is the opportunity to offer members a local awards program,” said Chris Cross, president of CHBA Vancouver Island. “We look forward to announcing … to our new merged membership that CHBA Vancouver Island will host our first VIBE Awards (Vancouver Island Building Excellence Awards) which will highlight the excellence in residential construction on the island.”

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of B.C. represents more than 1,500 members through an affiliated network throughout B.C.
