The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes is responsible for the development of the National Model Construction Codes. NRC publishes the Codes and, through the Canadian Codes Centre, ensures that the best available knowledge from across Canada and around the world is brought to bear on their development. NRC also publishes several User's Guides for the Codes as well as some provincial codes.

New edition

The National Model Codes and the User's Guide series are now collectively referred to as Codes Canada. Codes Canada 2015 are now available for purchase!

If you are unsure which edition applies to you, check with the authority having jurisdiction.

The electronic versions of the NBC 2015, NFC 2015 and NPC 2015 will be available in late February; however, you can purchase the printed versions of these Codes Canada publications now.
