About Us

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) is a trade organization which strives for professionalism and prides itself as being the voice of the residential construction industry both here at home in New Brunswick, and across the Country. Each of our Members follows a Code of Ethics and demonstrates a commitment of doing business the “right” way – the professional way.

Our Members could be your neighbors, friends or family. They include builders, renovators, land developers, electricians, plumbers, roofers, building supply dealers, bankers, energy consultants, insulators, municipalities, government, heating and ventilation contractors to name only a few. We represent every corner of the home building industry.

Our Association is governed by Member volunteers who advocate at all three levels of government in an effort to enhance our industry and protect you, the consumer from un-necessary and costly policies and regulations. At the municipal level, we have Local Councils and Associations in Saint John, Moncton, Fredericton, and Sussex. Our provincial office in Fredericton communicates with departments within our provincial government and it is equally important that our voice is heard at the national level to ensure our Member’s issues are brought forward and this is handled through our national office in Ottawa. 

There are many women and men in our Membership who work to shape our industry.They are innovators, inventors, educators, lobbyists, building science experts, and home building professionals. We are important and relevant to each and every New Brunswicker; we provide you with your most basic provision, valuable asset: the home where your life “happens”. 

Whether you live in an apartment, condominium, or house, it was built by a home builder, and most likely a member of the Canadian Home Builders Association New Brunswick.
