The Building Industry

The Building Industry and Land Development Association was formed through the merger of the Greater Toronto Home Builders' association (GTHBA) and the Urban Development Institute/Ontario.  BILD is the voice of the land development, home building and professional renovation industry in the Greater GTA.  BILD represents more than 1,400 member companies.
Our membership includes: home builders, land developers, professional RenoMarkTM renovators, land use and environmental planners, sub-contractors, manufacturers, lawyers, surveyors, architects, suppliers, and representatives of service, professional and financial institutions. Our goal is to improve the communication between the industry and government, provide enhanced opportunities for our members, promote the welfare of the industry, and protect the interests of consumers.

Canadian Home Builders

Since 1943, the Canadian Home Builders' Association has been "the voice of Canada's residential construction industry"—one of the most vital and enterprising industries in Canada. Representing more than 8,000 member firms across Canada, CHBA members come from every area of Canada's housing industry - new home builders, renovators, land developers, trade contractors, product and material manufacturers, building product suppliers, lending institutions, insurance providers, service professionals and others.


The voluntary technical standards and manuals developed by SMACNA Contractors have found worldwide acceptance by the construction community, as well as foreign government agencies. ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, has accredited SMACNA as a standards-setting organization. SMACNA does not seek to enforce its standards or provide accreditation for compliance.
SMACNA standards and manuals address all facets of the sheet metal industry, from duct construction and installation to air pollution control, from energy recovery to roofing. SMACNA's Technical Resources Department fields several thousand technical questions annually from architects, engineers, manufacturers and government personnel.

ASHRAE’s certification programs are developed by industry practitioners who understand the knowledge and experience that are expected for superior building design and system operation.

ASHRAE enjoys a worldwide reputation for being the leader in HVAC&R design and our certification programs serve to reinforce that reputation, which ASHRAE has worked hard to earn and maintain over the past 100 + years.

Ontario Home Builders
