The Canadian Farm Builders Association was formed by a group of farm building contractors who initially met on February 5th, 1980. This group of builders saw a need to establish uniformity and standards in the farm building industry. CFBA members have access to ongoing educational opportunities and advisories as well as communications regarding regulations and best practices. Members benefit from the CFBA's affiliation with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), the Council of Ontario Construction Associations (COCA), and other organizations the CFBA partners with to provide members with current information.
The Association is comprised of numerous stakeholders within the agricultural and construction sectors. CFBA members include farm builders, engineers, (OMAFRA) employees, building inspectors, and suppliers of farm building-related products and services.
The complexity of the farm building has increased exponentially over the last number of years. Today's farm buildings incorporate components that produce healthy livestock, save energy, and protect the environment. The quality of the new farm building is the result of current knowledge of building codes, construction practices, and environmental requirements - information that is available through the Canadian Farm Builders Association.
