About SABA

What We Do

SABA connects and represents the business and best practice interests of over 110  firms operating in the residential and light commercial construction industry.  SABA services the greater Stratford Area and Perth County.  SABA members prescribe to a code of ethics and are involved in the association in varying capacities.

One Membership, Three Levels of Service

While SABA represents over 110 firms, we draw additional strength on provincial and federal housing and construction matters of interest to the public from representation at the provincial and federal level.   We are integrated seamlessly with Ontario Home Builders Association, and the Canadian Home Builders Association.  

Our History

 

Established in 1987. a group of builders and allied professionals came together to form the association.  Over the last 30 plus years the association has grown to include many firms associated with building the community of Stratford and Perth County.    To view the story of the founding and formative days of the association and the record from the Beacon Herald, click below.
