Other special guests included MPP Jerry Ouellette, Oshawa; MPP John O'Toole, Durham; and MPP Christine Elliott, Whitby-Ajax.
The Regional Municipality of Durham is proud of the fine residential communities that have been built in recent years," said Regional Chair Roger Anderson. "New housing represents improved planning and design, and progress in the use of new materials and methods of construction. The establishment of new communities, schools, places of worship, roads, shopping centres and other public facilities has been stimulated by new housing.
He added that it is important that local citizens recognize what the home building industry adds in civic and economic progress to Durham, and what home ownership can mean both to the individual owner and to the total economic and social benefit of the region.
New Homes Month is the perfect opportunity to find out more about the home building industry and about the professionals involved in your new home buying process including the builders, lenders, mortgage insurers, new home sales professionals, manufacturers, suppliers and many other professionals who play an important role in residential housing.
Founded in 1953, the Durham Region Home Builders' Association (DRHBA) represents approximately 150 member companies representing more than 4,500 employees who share a common interest, concern and a genuine passion for the home building industry and for their customers.
