CAHPI (Atlantic) is a self-regulated body of Home and Property Inspectors, that is a part of the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors. The Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (Atlantic) defines the qualifications and performance requirements; regulating its members and granting the designation "Registered Home Inspector" to qualified practitioners in the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador and Prince Edward Island.
Home inspections began as a consumer service in the 1970's in direct response to the growing demand by the home buyers, and it soon became apparent that for the consumer, selecting a qualified Home Inspector was becoming as important as selecting a qualified Real Estate professional, or even the right home.
The Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI) was formed in 1982, and is the national organization of duly recognized provincial and regional associations. CAHPI-Atlantic was formed in 1997 and is the Atlantic member of CAHPI National.
One of the major goals of the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (Atlantic) is to enhance the technical and professional performance of home inspectors through education. It is also devoted to promoting the Standards of Practice and Code of Conduct, as the broadly accepted requirements for home inspectors.
