BILD Grande Prairie Alberta

We are thrilled to announce that CHBA-GP is now BILD Grande Prairie.

What exactly is BILD? BILD stands for Building Industry and Land Development, reflecting the 2017 provincial amalgamation between CHBA (Canadian Home Builder’s Association) and UDI (Urban Development Institute). Between their common interests in all things related to residential construction, the two bodies realized their positions together could be stronger and more powerful when it comes to advocating for land development, home building and renovation industries. The BILD partnership provides one unified voice – providing real solutions to benefit homebuyers and homeowners.

Thinking of buying a home in Grande Prairie? With all of the decisions that come with this big step, the first choice to explore is whether to buy a brand-new home or one that has been pre-loved.

Learn more about the reasons you should consider a new home on our new home page.
