CAHPIAlberta
In the Spring of 1992, a group of home inspectors from Alberta and Saskatchewan met at the invitation of Peter Salmon of Calgary to discuss the profession of home inspection with the view of forming an association of professional home inspectors. The meeting was attended by twenty-five interested individuals, and it was concluded that an association would be beneficial both to the public and to the inspection profession.

In January of 1993, the Prairies organization officially achieved chapter status with the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). On March 3, 1993, the Canadian Association of Home Inspectors (Prairies Chapter) was registered under the Societies Act in Alberta with a complete set of by-laws. In October of 1996, CAHI and American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) developed an agreement whereby CAHI was its own organization, not a chapter of ASHI. The agreement positively reflects the cooperation between ASHI and CAHI.

In March, 1998, as a result of the formation of CAHI Saskatchewan and CAHI Manitoba, CAHI Prairies changed its name to CAHI Alberta to reflect the province it serves.

In April, 2002, CAHI Alberta changed its name to the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors – Alberta (CAHPI – Alberta). This was done to align our association with the national association, which is now named the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors.

CAHPI Alberta is one of seven provincial and regional associations who are members of CAHPI National.
