Protecting Ontario's New Home Buyers

When you buy a new home, you want to know that your investment is safe. For many home buyers, one of the deciding factors in purchasing a new home is the warranty that comes with it. The home building industry is a strong advocate of consumer protection, and new home warranty is an essential aspect of builders' commitment to quality and consumer satisfaction. Warranty coverage varies across the country, but is mandatory in Ontario. Coverage provided by the registered builder is supported by The Tarion Warranty Corporation.

All of the Sarnia-Lambton Home Builders Association Builder Members are registered with Tarion.

Tarion is a private corporation which was established in 1976 to protect the rights of new home buyers and regulate new home builders.

Tarion administers the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act, which outlines the warranty protection that new home purchasers are entitled to in Ontario.
Tarion's Mandate:

  • License new home builders and vendors
  • Ensure builders/vendors abide by the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act
  • Help educate new home buyers about their warranty rights
  • Protect consumers when builders fail to fulfil their warranty obligations
  • Resolve disputes about warranty coverage
  • Investigate illegal building practices
  • Promote high standards of new home construction
