As the voice for B.C.’s mortgage brokers, the Canadian Mortgage Brokers Association – British Columbia (CMBA-BC) represents the province’s mortgage industry. Incorporated in 1990, the Association exists to support and enhance professionalism and ethical standards within the mortgage industry.
CMBA-BC offers educational opportunities and networking events designed to enhance professional development and relationship building within the industry and among clientele. The Association works with industry partners and the regulator to maintain industry integrity and elevate the profile and market position of mortgage brokers in the province.
The Association is governed by an elected Board of Directors and is supported by committees and task groups formed of industry leaders. The Executive Director/CEO, Carla Giles, MBA, CAE, runs the Association’s operations and executes the strategy set by the Board of Directors with the support of a Member Services Team.
Bylaw amendments are by special resolution, and voted upon at Annual General Meetings or Extraordinary General Meetings. The Bylaw Committee is headed by the President of the Association.
An Ethics Complaint Procedure is also available for cases of misconduct.
The Mortgage Brokers Association of BC (MBABC) and other industry Associations from across Canada came together in 2015 to form the Canadian Mortgage Brokers Association (CMBA).
MBABC chose to adopt new branding to reflect this union, becoming CMBA-BC, with CMBA-Ontario and CMBA-Atlantic doing likewise.
