History & Vision


Trico Homes' Wayne ChiuThe Trico Group was established in June of 1992 by Wayne Chiu, a mechanical engineer educated in Winnipeg and Hong Kong.

From humble beginnings, and less than 20 houses per year in the early 90's, Trico Homes has established an enviable reputation and is recognized as one of Western Canada's top residential builders - with a history of integrity, community support and a legacy of building over 8,000 single and multi-family homes.

Trico Homes was also awarded the "2006 Ethics Award" by the Better Business Bureau of Southern Alberta and was the recipient of the annual "Leadership Award" for mid-sized businesses by Volunteer Calgary.

Trico Homes is a Certified B Corporation

A Certified B Corporation (B stands for 'Benefit') is an accreditation showing that a company voluntarily meets standards of transparency, accountability, and performance. Unlike traditional corporations that look only to benefit the shareholders, Certified B Corporations are required to consider the impact their decisions have on customers, employees, suppliers, community, and the environment. To become a B Corp, a company must also get a passing score on an assessment of its business practices administered by a nonprofit group called B Lab. Trico Homes is the first residential home builder in Canada to become a Certified B Corporation.
