Coats for Kids Launches today!

ANNUAL COATS FOR KIDS CAMPAIGN GENERATES A REACTION.

The Greater Vancouver Homebuilders’ Association members have been providing drop-off locations for people to donate lightly used and new coats since 1995, in support of the Lower Mainland and Surrey Christmas Bureaus, serving families in need.

This year the campaign runs from Monday, November 14 through to Thursday, December 1st, with 48 GVHBA member companies offering 63 drop-off locations across 13 municipalities.

More than just keeping a child warm, every coat donated warms the hearts of many people along the way.

“The simple act of donating a coat to keep a child warm connects people contributing to a good cause. You can see the warmth and kindness shared between people as the coats are dropped-off and collected, and I think this is a reaction worth spreading”, said GVHBA Chair Darren Cranston of Polygon Homes.

Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heartwarming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 gently used and new coats, scarves, gloves, blankets, and new toys for distribution to children of all ages.

Speaking with the Vancouver Christmas Bureau Executive Director Chris Bayliss, he said, “this year in particular, we are seeing more demand with the increase in refugees, and migration of workers and their families from Alberta, noting all those in need provide income statements and proof of residency. ”

Chris continued, “The needs are real, and clothing is often overlooked. People think of toys and food around this time of year, but keeping kids warm is an essential need for every parent too; especially during the colder winter months.” He said “watching the relief on a parent’s face who finds a size-appropriate coat for their child is a good feeling.”

Coats for teens are always in high demand. Even though some teens fit adult sizing, the coats need to appeal their age group (hoodies are always a popular choice). Buying new items for donations is also an option, along with donating scarves, hats, gloves, and new unwrapped toys (hockey sticks, soccer and basketballs, and art supplies are always a hit).

Drop-off locations for the Coats for Kids campaign can be found here.

Exorbitant Duty on Drywall Harms Business, Home Buyers

Ottawa – September 16, 2016 – The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) today expressed extreme concern over the recently announced provisional duties on gypsum board (drywall) by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).  CBSA invoked the Special Import Measures Act on September 6th, making a preliminary determination of alleged dumping with respect to certain gypsum board originating from the United States to Western and Northern Canada. Unfortunately, the ensuing duties, effective immediately, will have far reaching detrimental effects on struggling Canadian businesses and economies.

 
“The scope of the anti-dumping investigation only considers the domestic market for drywall producers, not the impact on the rest of the industry and end-users. There was not sufficient attention paid to the unintended downstream effects of this decision or the implications for the public interest,” explains Kevin Lee, Chief Executive Officer of the CHBA. “These extremely high duties ranging from 105.2% to 276.5%, on about half of the drywall sold in Western Canada, will severely affect the businesses of drywall contractors, builders and renovators, who will face losses on contracts already in place for the months ahead. At a time when our governments are seeking to avoid further housing price increases, this duty will send both house prices and affordability further in the wrong direction.”
 
“Supply shortages and higher costs for drywall are the last thing we need in the already vulnerable Alberta market,” observes Carol Oxtoby, a developer in Calgary, AB. “We should be concerned that smaller companies may be forced into bankruptcy, as existing contracts may force them to fully absorb cost increases. As the Alberta economy seeks to recover, a duty that harms businesses and damages affordability for home buyers is a major step in the wrong direction. Worst of all, the impacts of higher prices and shortages will be felt severely in Fort McMurray, affecting the rebuild there so important after the fires.”  
 
“You already have a high-priced housing market in Greater Vancouver and the lower mainland,” notes Nathan Stone, a builder in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. “No one can afford further increases to construction costs. This increase will have a negative impact on new home buyers and homeowners’ renovation projects. Many of our drywall companies are at serious risk with contracts already in place.”
 
“Although the duty is on imports to our Western provinces, this isn’t just an issue for the residential construction industry in the West,” says Bob Finnigan, national president of the CHBA and builder in Toronto. “This is quickly becoming a national issue.  We are already seeing ripple effects on price and warnings of supply restrictions in Ontario as uncertainty about the supply of drywall grows and Ontario plants potentially start to have to supplying the Western markets. As we try to keep house prices contained in the GTA, increases in drywall prices and potential shortages will only make matters worse.” 
 
The CBSA decision on this came with an immediate imposition of these extremely high provisional duties. While the process is ongoing and final determination is still months away, the negative impacts on industry and consumers of the duty are being felt now.  
 
“While we respect the process, suffering companies cannot wait [until January] to see the final decision on this,” says Lee. “Even if duties are reduced or eliminated in the end of the review process, or if we have to request a hearing into the public interest because the duties are upheld – the damage to industry will be done. In the meantime, efforts to reduce house prices and protect affordability, as well as those to support the economy as it seeks to recover, are being undermined severely.”

The GVHBA has concerns over the retroactive nature of the proposed PPT

The GVHBA has concerns over the retroactive nature of the proposed PTT. In new housing construction, pre-sale and custom build contracts are agreed to months, if not years in advance of completion.

These contracts are entered into in good faith, and on full disclosure of costs, fees and taxes. The retroactive nature of the new tax will create an unfair and punitive burden to purchasers holding presale and custom-build contracts that close after August 2nd.

We would urge the provincial government to amend the proposed policy to exempt all contracts signed prior to August 2nd.
