CAHPI(BC) is a self-regulating Association of professional home and property inspectors, representing all regions of British Columbia. We are committed to protecting consumers through our stringent membership requirements, mandatory ongoing training programs, and our detailed CAHPI(BC) Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. CAHPI(BC) was instrumental in seeking provincial regulatory control of the home inspection industry which came into effect April 1, 2009. All BC practicing home and property inspectors must now be licensed through Consumer Protection BC, responsible for licensing and administering of regulations.
CAHPI(BC), the largest association of home inspectors in the province, has been critical of lax laws and non-existent inspection standards since our inception in 1991. Since licensing for home inspectors was enacted in 2009, we continue to work with CPBC and the Government to close loopholes that allow insufficiently trained inspectors to conduct home inspections, and have pushed to raise standards to ensure every home buyer gets a comprehensive and accurate home inspection from the industry.
In 2012 CAHPI(BC), by the unanimous vote of its membership, brought a truly Canadian home inspection Standard of Practice (SOP) to life in BC. The CAHPI Standard is an enhanced version of the ASHI standards, which has provided guidance to the industry for over 21 years. The new Standards support CAHPI home inspectors, and their clients all across Canada, in delivering consistent inspection services from sea to sea.
*** On July 22, 2014 we will be hosting an information session for industry stakeholders to gather information and take questions related to the CAHPI Standards of Practice in British Columbia. You are invited to attend at the CAHPI(BC) office, 5 3304 Appaloosa Rd, Kelowna on Tuesday, June 22nd. Please call the office if you would like to attend. This stakeholder and public dialogue is a continuation of CAHPI(BC)’s ongoing effort to improve the home inspection profession and meet the needs of consumers.***
