Builder Licensing

All residential builders are required to have a builder licence in order to construct new homes.

Builder licensing is intended to reduce the risks prospective home owners face by establishing a licensing system, providing consumers with information on builders, and creating provisions to remove or suspend builders when necessary to protect home owners from negligent or unscrupulous businesses.

Builder licensing applies to anyone constructing new homes, including condominiums and large multi-family homes, as well as renovations when a residential construction project requires new home warranty coverage.
