Upholding HHHBA members to the highest standards
Only businesses which are committed to delivering the highest quality of products and services to new home buyers are permitted to join the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders’ Association.
The HHHBA application and approval process ensures that our members maintain the tradition and legacy that the HHHBA has built since 1942.

Generally, companies join the Association, and as a company membership, any/all employees/representatives can benefit from the membership for the same annual fee. Alternatively, an individual can join in any of the same categories.
There are four categories to choose from:
* Builder/developer members are required to pay into a mandatory Consumer Protection Fund. This fund is used for advocacy on behalf of our members. The total fee is based on a fee table linked to the average units built and developed based on a 3 year average. The total CPF fee varies according to each unit sold/developed bracket as per the detailed table in the membership application document. which is a minimum of $500 to a maximum of $10,000.00
** The Youth/Entrepreneur rate is available to all non-builder member entrepreneurs who wish to join the association, who are under 35 years of age, have been in business for themselves for less than five years.
