partnerships

BILD works with a multitude of partners.

Habitat for Humanity GTA has been BILD’s community partner since 2003. Over the years, our members have helped us raise funds to support Habitat’s efforts to give a hand up to working low-income families throughout . We are proud to have helped fund new homes for 13 families. BILD members also support Habitat by contributing to Habitat’s ReStores, participating in Habitat Build Days constructing homes, and by providing expertise to the organization.

BILD partners with numerous educational institutions including Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, the University of Waterloo and George Brown College. We sponsor university courses in planning, support academic research on the industry, and work with community colleges and unions to promote the building trades as a career choice. As well, we support the future generation of the industry through hands-on learning opportunities and student bursary programs.

The Association also has numerous partnerships with corporations, agencies and non-profit organizations such as EnerQuality Corporation, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Canadian Urban Institute, Urban Land Institute, Ontario Professional Planners Institute, the Residential Construction Council of Ontario and many more.

We work closely with our provincial and federal partner associations the Ontario Home Builders' Association and the Canadian Home Builders' Association.
