Please note that most builders on the registry are in good standing. However, as of November 19, 2007, the registry also shows builders not in good standing. You can now check the current Status

Only builders with a general contractor licence type status are permitted to construct residential buildings under Part 9 of the BC Building Code.
If you are looking to build a custom home, you must hire a licensed builder with a general contractor status.
Builders licensed as developers must not take part in constructing Part 9 residential buildings unless they contract with a person who is licensed as a general contractor for the construction of the buildings.
To learn more about the different licence types, please review Regulatory Bulletin 12
