    The new Solicitor General for British Columbia, John Van Dongen, has been on record as stating to the effect he saw no value in such legislation.

    However I do know that CAHPI-BC have invited John Van Dongen to speak to a meeting of CAHPI members this month.

    Don't forget you also have another association in BC with BCIPI/ASTTBC thrown into the mix, so as in Alberta if any legislation is on the horizion in BC every association would be included in the pre legislation discussions.

    Cheers,

    The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.

    Cheers,

    I was at that meeting and while it does look promising I think it's still a ways away. There has been a tremendous amount of work done by many to come up with National Standards Certification open to all Home Inspectors but from that meeting it sounded like the gov't is going to set up a committee (of non-HI's) to develop their own Standards and qualifying criteria. So who knows where that will take us - hopefully it won't be a disaster.

    WOW ! I take that back. It's only been a short few months and it's here! Effective March 31, 2009 all HI's in BC will need to be licensed by the province.

    Congratulations to all who worked so hard to help bring this together !
