Ontario Strengthens Consumer Protection for New Home Buyers and Owners

February 01, 2021

The Ontario government is designating the Home Construction Regulatory Authority (HCRA) the regulator responsible for new home builders and vendors. The HCRA will help ensure that new home buyers and owners are well-informed and better protected by:


  • Licensing new home builders and vendors;

  • Expanding the existing Ontario Builder Directory to provide regulatory compliance and warranty information about thousands of builders and vendors across the province; and

  • Implementing a formal complaints process for the conduct of new home builders and vendors.
