Leadership Builds Our Community

BC recently implemented Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for licensing new home builders.

Our association supported this initiative for professionalism, consumer protection and to create a formal career path for young people.

This is a first in Canada, and we have worked hard to improve access to government-approved CPD seminars.

For example, we encouraged industry and education organizations to register as CPD providers, enabling builders throughout our region to acquire CPD credits for industry presentations.

In addition, VRBA has delivered very affordable and free CPD seminars to more than 100 VRBA builders including:

  • Construction Contracts and Builders Lien Act
  • Changes to Windows and doors
  • Asbestos and Toxic Materials in Renovations
  • Changes to BC’s Electrical Safety Regulations

Our upcoming CPD seminar on May 5 “Advancing Energy Efficiency in Home Construction” with RDH Building Science, Island Energy and Centra Windows offers important updates on the building envelope.

VRBA’s support for education was recently recognized by the Victoria Chamber of Commerce at their Business Awards event.

VRBA was a Finalist in the Business Leadership category – a great honour for our Board of Directors, members and staff.

We will continue to advance the residential construction industry through leadership in education, professionalism, housing affordability and consumer protection.

The public can offer their support by visiting and using our online Expression of Interest form to obtain quotes for new homes and renovations.

Together, we will continue building an outstanding community and industry.
