Canadian Farm Builders Association

The Canadian Farm Builders Association was formed by a group of farm building contractors who met on February 5, 1980 and saw a need for some uniformity in the farm building industry as well as some quality standards to work from. 

With ongoing seminars and manuals the CFBA members today work with the latest information available. Most of this information comes from the Canadian Farm Builders Association and OMAFRA. Today their association has over two hundred members. These members include farm builders, suppliers of, steel roofing, concrete, insulation, lumber, wood trusses, pre-engineered steel buildings, ventilation equipment, glue-lam beams, dairy equipment and other farm building-related products.

Conference Information

We are pleased to announce the launch of registration for the CFBA’s 2023 Conference to be held on Thursday, April 21st, at the Arden Park – Best Western Hotel in Stratford ON. The CFBA Conference Committee has worked to create an engaging agenda with interesting topics and education. It has been 2 years since we’ve been able to host the conference, so we hope you can join us!

Conference details and registration information may be viewed here on the CFBA website. Register by March 21st to be eligible for the Early Bird draw.

Builder Awards Competition

The CFBA’s 2022 Builder Awards competition is now open, and CFBA Builder members are invited to submit their entries! Details regarding the 2022 competition are available here on the CFBA website.

As in prior years, entries will be viewed and voted on by participants at the April 20th conference, with the winning Builders recognized at the Awards Dinner that evening. We had hoped to amend the Awards competition for this year, however, this update has been deferred due to the additional entries we anticipate receiving with the double cohort (no competition in 2021) and needed resources to support this. We thank you for your understanding.

Conference Sponsorship

The CFBA conference would not be possible without the support of our very generous sponsors. We will be reaching out shortly, to our former sponsors to ask for their continued support at our April 21st event. Sponsorships are listed here on the Conference Info webpage. Please email me at with sponsorship questions or requests.

We thank everyone for supporting the CFBA, and we hope to see you on April 20th!
