2019 Training House Sponsors Recognized at the CHBA CI Private Reception 

Kamloops, BC – May 24, 2019 – Sponsors of the 2019 Training House/ Y Dream Home were recognized at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association Central Interior (CHBACI) private reception in Tobiano last night. 

The Training House is a 29-year-old program in partnership with Thompson Rivers University that includes the collaboration of professional builders and educators with trades students to build a home with the express purpose of providing real-life training to those working towards a rewarding career within the residential construction industry. The home once completed, was once again sold to the YMCA/YWCA as part of their annual program fundraiser to be raffled off to one lucky winner.

“This unique off-campus, real-life training opportunity would not be possible without the amazing contributions of our local sponsors and we were so happy to have had the chance to acknowledge their shared efforts and give praise where praise was due this evening” says Kelly Reid, CHBA Central Interior President. “We hope members of the public will notice the generous contributions made by our sponsors year after year and turn to them when they are in need of products and expertise for a renovation or new residential construction project”.

Presenting, Diamond and Platinum sponsors were given plaques, Gold, Silver and Copper sponsors were given certificates and the CHBA CI received a plaque from the YMCA/YWCA Board representing their long standing partnership.
