Builder Licensing

CHBA BC, our provincial association, offers certification for builders and renovators to gain recognition in your career and or company, with Certified Housing Professional, Certified Renovation Professional, and Master Residential Builder programs.

On March 6 the B.C. Government announced important changes to the Homeowner Protection Act regulations as part of “Better Regulations for British Columbians 2019.” These changes help simplify and streamline the process for annual Continuing Professional Development.
The following changes will come into effect on July 1, 2019:

  • Active practice category for 20 points of CPD is removed;
  • 20 CPD points are required instead of 40;
  • Nominees may be able to carry up to 20 extra earned CPD training points over from one licence term to the next, and,
  • Builders are no longer having to take a majority of CPD points in a particular category (known as “category A” in the current regulation).
