October is Reno Month
Every year the Canadian Home Builders Association (CHBA) designates the month of October as Renovation month across Canada. Typically, Renovation Month is a time for our industry to organize seminars and other events to help consumers understand what goes into a home renovation and what to look for when you are planning a renovation.
The Renovator Committee for the CHBA-ER works on the Renovation Month Community Day(s) of Service Project. This project is a committee led initiative supporting local charities with a two-day renovation. The first project for the Canadian Home Builders Association – Edmonton Region (CHBA-ER) was in 2015.
For the Fourth Annual Renovation Project the committee has chosen to work with Alberta Hospital. This is a unique partnership between Alberta Hospital and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Edmonton Region, and the only partnership of its kind across Canada.
This years’ Renovator Community Day of Service Project has a personal connection with one of our members and project lead, Isha Ribeiro.
Alberta Hospital is a psychiatric hospital which provides services for patients suffering with mental health disorders. Isha had a sister who developed psychosis and was being treated at Alberta Hospital.

This renovation involves revitalizing Buddzzz Bistro and turning an under-utilized enclosed courtyard into a and functional space. This is a huge project and the committee is looking for help - either through volunteering, in-kind donations, or cash.
