The Canadian Farm Builders Association

Who we are

The Canadian Farm Builders Association was established by a group of farm building contractors who met on February 5th, 1980 with the purpose of establishing uniformity and standards in the farm building industry.

Today our members include numerous stakeholders within the agricultural and construction sectors; farm builders, engineers, building officials, suppliers of products and services in support of farm building, and representatives from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA).

“Quality is the result of current knowledge of building codes, construction practices and environmental requirements.”

The complexity of the farm building has increased significantly over the last number of years. Today's farm buildings incorporate components that produce healthy livestock, save energy, and protect the environment. Our members have access to ongoing educational opportunities and advisories as well as communications regarding regulations and best practices.
