The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) invites all interested parties to take part in its fall 2017 public review of proposed changes to the 2015 editions of Codes Canada publications from November 6, 2017 to January 2, 2018.

Codes Canada publications are continually evolving in order to remain responsive to current and emerging issues, new technologies, materials, construction practices, research, social policy, and the changing needs of Canadian society.

Running from October 11 to December 9, 2016, the first public review of the 2015 Codes will focus primarily on proposed changes to the 2015 editions of the NECB and the NPC.

To help Quebec code users understand the code provisions and their impacts, NRC, in collaboration with the Régie du bâtiment du Québec, is offering seminars on major technical changes in these documents.

The national model codes governing construction in Canada—the National Building Code, National Fire Code, National Plumbing Code and National Energy Code for Buildings—are now collectively called Codes Canada.

For over 75 years, the provinces, territories and the federal government have worked together in supporting an open collaborative process for developing model building, fire, plumbing and energy codes with the aim of harmonizing building and safety regulations across Canada.
