Associations and Certifications

MD Inspect Plus' residential building inspectors have taken a home inspection course and have many hours of field training.   

Our inspectors are bilingual so the inspection report and the on onsite explanations can be in either language (French or English).  Note that the Horizon Report is only available in English. 

Our inspectors are constantly working to improve their skills and are working towards they National Certification.  Originally our inspectors were joining the AIBQ however the association is nothing but a money pit and the way it is currently being run is not worth being associated with. 

National Certification is GOLD standard in the Canadian inspection industry.   In 2010, CAHPI (actually the provincial groups) cancelled the National Certification program leaving hundreds of members in limbo.   To fill this void, a new national  association has been formed called PHPIC (Professional Home and Property Inspectors of Canada) and they accept inspector from all of the provinces. 

A new certification body has been created called NHICC (National Home Inspector Certification Council) that is not affiliated with any specific Inspector's association.   The group has taken over from where CAHPI stopped and is in the process of being recognized by all of the original partners in the initial National Certification Program.  Groups on board so far are CMHC, Construction Sector Council and recently the British Columbia government has recognized the certification as  as one they accept for inspectors wishing to inspect in the province.

Did the inspector show up on time? Were the explanations easy to understand?  Was the report information clear and concise?  Was there something you would have liked more information about?  If you have a comment about one of our inspectors (good or bad), please feel free to Email Us your comments.
