ABOUT US

The Greater Moncton Home Builders' Association (GMHBA) was established in 1973 and incorporated in 1977 as a non-profit, industry association comprised of builders, renovators, land developers, manufacturers, suppliers, utility representatives, mortgage lenders, realtors, architects, government representatives, professional people and others engaged in the residential construction industry. The GMHBA is the local organization of the CHBA-NB which is the provincial association. Three other local organizations are located in Saint John, Fredericton, and the Sussex and District region.

How does the Association Work?

The Canadian Home Builders' Association is one association that serves its members and represents the residential construction industry at three levels -- locally, provincially and nationally. All levels of the Association work closely together to keep members up-to-date on the latest developments and well prepared to deal with business challenges and opportunities.

When you join the Canadian Home Builders' Association in your area, you automatically become a member at the local, provincial and national levels, and you get the benefit of services and activities from all three levels.

Locally

Monthly meetings, newsletters, publications, workshops, access to expert advice, marketing campaigns, demonstration projects, awards programs, social activities, etc. a full slate of services and activities gives members the opportunity to make business contacts, gain knowledge and enhance visibility with consumers.

Provincially (CHBA-NB)

Our Association is in regular contact with provincial government departments and agencies on a wide range of housing matters, from codes and standards to infrastructure financing and environmental legislation. Education and training programs for association members are organized and delivered at the provincial level.

Nationally (CHBA)

The National Office provides a "hub" for the entire membership. Consultations with the federal government, collaboration with public and private research agencies to promote research and demonstration projects, consumer education and marketing initiatives with national industry partners, newsletters and publications, conferences, and awards provide valuable services to members across the country.
