MEMBERSHIP MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Membership acts upon three tiers: local, provincial, and national representation. One membership provides you access to all three levels.
How to Become a Member
Identify the local home builders’ association you wish to join, such as the nearest one to you. Each local association operates under their own specific policies.
Apply to become a member of a local association.
Once your membership is completed, you will automatically be connected to the provincial home builders’ association (ex. OHBA) and national home builders’ association (CHBA).
Benefits of Becoming a Member
Gain insider access to a wealth of resources designed for home builders and professional renovators!
OHBA provides members with professional high-powered advocacy. OHBA representation at meetings with Ministry officials varies with the matter being discussed and the status of the discussion. OHBA serves on provincial task forces, submits written briefs and makes presentations at Standing Committee hearings at Queen’s Park.
