On February 28, 2019, the Government of Canada confirmed funding that will support ongoing and future building code development work. This is good news that will allow NRC to continue to support the building code development system and to provide free access to the national model codes. Starting in spring 2019, NRC will offer free online access to the National Building Code, the National Fire Code, the National Plumbing Code, and the National Energy Code for Buildings, as well as the provincial codes published by NRC. Paper copies of the Codes, along with other supporting documents including the Guides, will be offered at a reduced cost. Due to these changes, longer term subscriptions are not currently available. Please touch base with us again in April for an update and more information.
Codes Canada publications are available in printed and electronic formats. Printing of electronic formats is limited or disabled depending on the Code edition and subscription type. See the Features page for details.

The National Plumbing Code of Canada 2015 (NPC), published by NRC and developed by the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes, sets out technical provisions for the design and installation of new plumbing systems and also applies to the extension, alteration, renewal and repair of existing plumbing systems.
Twenty-eight technical changes are incorporated in the NPC 2015, increasing design and material choices and introducing water-use efficiency for plumbing fixtures, supply fittings and shower heads. The new water-efficiency requirements aim to reduce water usage in all buildings, regardless of water source. The Environment objective, already in the National Energy Code for Buildings and the National Building Code, was also introduced into the NPC 2015 to address “excessive use of water.”
The NPC 2015 has been re-organized to consolidate relevant information. Each Part now contains the Prescriptive Requirements, followed by the Attribution Table and related (appendix) Notes.
The NPC 2015 is an essential resource for anyone who designs or installs plumbing systems.
