The New Home Warranty Program of Manitoba Inc. is a non-profit
organization comprised of a Board of Directors, a Registration
Committee, a Technical Committee, and staff.
Board of Directors
The heart of our organization can be found in our Board which
is comprised of 5 elected Builder Members and 5 appointed Non-Builder
representatives from associated industries.
Our Board is responsible for the Program's longevity by involving
themselves in almost every mechanism which provides organization
and direction to the New Home Warranty Program. The balanced representation
between builders and non-builders ensures that the direction taken
is equitable for both builder members and homeowners. It also
allows for flexibility, a diverse knowledge base, and a progressive
outlook when it comes to decision making and policy revision.
Some of the areas in which the Board is involved are:
- Policies and procedures
- Projects and joint-ventures
- Ratification of decisions made by our Committees resulting
in their resolution
Our Technical Committee is responsible for reviewing and providing
recommendations on all claims involving a possible 'major structural
defect' (2 - 5 year items). The Committee is also involved in
any dispute or revision regarding the warranty clauses and defect
guidelines. Representation is comprised of 3 builder members,
a qualified Engineer and a City of Winnipeg Inspections Officer.
The expertise and dedication of this Committee ensures that claims
are dealt with fairly and in a timely manner.
The Registration Committee meets to review membership renewals
and new applications for membership. This Committee is comprised
of representation from the Canadian Bankers' Association, the
Program's Chief Executive Officer, an accountant, and a lawyer.
Our office is currently comprised of a Chief Executive Officer,
Warranty Manager/Inspector and Administrative Staff. The staff
are responsible for all incoming inquiries, claims review, the
processing of various forms, registration and renewal of membership,
