Canadian Standards Association seeks input on draft home inspection standards

{October 31, 2014} The Ministry Responsible for Housing is sharing the following information: The Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group) is seeking input on their draft home inspection standards. CSA Group has worked with the home inspection industry, consumers, provinces/territories and others to develop independent draft standards for home inspections in Canada. Your feedback and comments will be accepted until December 15, 2014.

Please note that the Canadian Standards Association review is a separate initiative from the one the BC government will be undertaking. However the Province will review the final draft of the CSA standards to determine its applicability to home inspections in B.C.
