Building Regulations for Market Access program

As the Canadian building construction market grows, builders face increasing technical and innovation challenges that lead to increased construction costs and shrinking profit margins. The Building Regulations for Market Access (BRMA) program guides industry clients and partners toward the market acceptance of innovative building products and supports them through improved building regulations.

To achieve this, the program works with provincial and territorial governments to support the development of model codes that are harmonized, simple and that enable business growth. Through strategic research and technical services, the BRMA program also works with clients to commercialize and evaluate new products while ensuring their compliance with code requirements.
