The 2010 edition of the National Fire Code of Canada (NFC), which incorporates significant technical changes from the 2005 edition, sets out the technical provisions regulating:

  • activities related to the construction, use or demolition of buildings and facilities
  • the condition of specific elements of buildings and facilities
  • the design or construction of specific elements of facilities related to certain hazards
  • protection measures for the current or intended use of buildings.

The NFC 2010 complements the National Building Code of Canada 2010. Both must be considered when constructing, renovating or maintaining buildings.
