I think it would befitting for NACHI to invite the Reps from CMHC to the National Convention, it would be a good time for Bill and the CMHC guys to hear questions from the floor about NC, and to show that NACHI is a leader in the inspection industry. It would also allow NACHI to parade its CMI designation.

What da ya say?

I think that could be a great idea .
With all the Difficulties with the Canadian Associations and the way they treat their members it could be very smart for those who have had enough of the problems to have a good look at NACHI .
More returns many for free and the Cost is considerably less for a membership.
Roy Cooke A Happy NACHI member

With all the vendors there and inspectors, it would be a great opportunity for CMHC to get the feel and pulse of the inspection industry! We could also invite Canadians for Properly Built Homes, and Tarion would be a good invitee too!

Oh yeah Raymond… now you just ruined my day… TARION? Just when OAHI hired the COE of Tarion to be the COO for OAHI… it will only go downhill from here!:frowning:

And to think we were getting along just fine!:mrgreen:

He may not want the COO job, once he finds out whats going on with the books, deficit and inflated revenue projections. He won’t need a calculator either. Besides its not in the budget.

Hang on its going to be a bumpy ride. Seems the Finance Committee had to seek approval from the Treasurer to buy batteries for their calculators. :mrgreen::mrgreen:

Has anyone found out where Head Office is yet? I called the OAHI office today and the answering machine was on, had to endure a lengthy phone message. At the end there was no beep, no way to leave a message. So professional. :shock: Will have to call tomorrow and talk to Aubrey.

I think that having C.M.H.C. at the affair is a really great idea. Can they be offered a free booth as an enticement? The various ministers etc should be asked to attend too . Perhaps one of them would step in to fill the “Key note speaker” position that Bill Mullet has vacated?

George I did not think Bill Mullen had steped down Can you please confirm.
That would be most unfortunate and I hope he has not done this .

I think we should also invite the COO COO from OAHI. :wink:

Taken from the CMHC site, hiring a home Inspector:

“CMHC does not recommend or endorse any individual home inspector or association. CMHC does encourage and support the private home inspection industry to establish national uniform standards of competency. For more information on the inspection industry’s national initiative please refer to the CMHC Research Highlight Canadian Home Inspectors and Building Officials National Initiatve Phase Two: Development of National Certification and Accreditation Models on CMHC’s website…”

I would welcome their approval by all means, but I don’t see how we can get past the “OAHI/CAHPI Rules” mentality.:roll:

Roy, here is the info you requested;

I’m done trying to help.
Nick, please cut off my privileges for this forum. I have no more to say either here or at your convention. I will now put all my efforts into helping people who deserve it …CAHPI members.
CAHPI forever !!
Bill Mullen

So it appears that this time slot is now open for the C.M.H.C. people.

Darren, there are things going on behind the scenes on our behalf. The support of members such as you will be needed in the near future .

Stand by more comming soon
To quote Al Jolson and his words… “You ain’t seen nothing yet”

Roy Cooke

You’re right, I’m somewhat ignorant to all the facts and history at this time, I have only scratched the surface of what is going on.
Of course NACHI and our members have my support. I want our industry to flourish and inspectors who really care to win in the end. This is my career change I’m in the middle of, so I want what’s best for us and our clients.

Be sure to keep your money out of the hands of OAHI. Any self regulating body that won’t tell the members where the Head Office is likely has financial difficulties they don’t want the membership at large to know about. Stay tuned, more details as they become available.

one of your best Raymond lol

AS Darren quoted above, CMHC states they do not endorse one particular inspection association,… shows a slightly different story.
HAlf way down the page is this quote…
The Home Inspector
You should consider having any home you are thinking of buying inspected by a knowledgeable and professional inspector.
***The home inspector’s role is to inform you on the property’s condition. He will tell you if something is not functioning properly, needs to be changed or is unsafe. You will also be informed of repairs that need to be done and he/she may even be able to tell you where there may have been problems in the past.

***…There is presently no uniform certification and no requirement for home inspectors to take any courses or to have passed any tests. Anyone can say that they are a home inspector. However, a good home and property inspector generally belongs to a provincial or industry association such as the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors at ****** ***](javascript:HandleLink(‘cpe_1752_0’,‘CPNEWWIN:NewWindow^top=10,left=10,width=500,height=400,toolbar=1,location=1,directories=0,status=1,menubar=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1@’);)***and l’Ordre des technologues professionnels du Québec at](javascript:HandleLink(‘cpe_1752_0’,‘CPNEWWIN:NewWindow^top=10,left=10,width=500,height=400,toolbar=1,location=1,directories=0,status=1,menubar=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1@’);)***.
Home inspector fees are generally $200 and more, depending on the size and condition of the home.

If this is not an endoresment, then what is?
And the price, definetly time for an update of that website

My fees are much higher. Thanks CMHC for helping the bottom feeder low cost inspectors.

Do you really think a PEng or Architect would be hindered from doing home inspections without being Nationally Cert?
