The new organization was also given the mandate to lead the development of the National Building Code of Canada. Since then, NRC's Construction Research Centre has grown to encompass emergent areas of research in support of the Canadian construction sector.
The edition of the building code was supposed to be an objective or performance-based building. However, this took considerably longer to write than foreseen and the next edition of the National Building Code of Canada was not published until Requirements on the specification of structural wood products and wood building systems is set forth in the National Building Code which is concerned with health, safety, accessibility and the protection of buildings from fire or structural damage.
The Code applies mainly to new construction, but also aspects of demolition, relocation, renovation and change of building use.
The current NBCC was published in , and is usually updated on a five-year cycle. The next update is expected in Some jurisdictions create their own code based on the National Building Code, other jurisdictions have adopted the National Building often with supplementary laws or regulations to the requirements in the National Building Code. The Code available on-line for anybody want to watch it. I think it is absurd that we are held to a standard but unless we pay the government hundreds of dollars, we will not be allowed to know what that standard is.
You are held to a standard which is not readily accessible to you but if you fail to meet the standard you are held financially responsible. I agree with Mr. I would think that this information would be cheaper or free with all of the taxes we, as small business owners, have to pay. I agree.
Not a big outlay in comparison to a costly deficiency fix due to not knowing the code! A couple of months ago, I was looking for information regarding elevators…to my surprise the NBC was not available on-line, unless I paid for it. All laws and regulations should be available for free to all citizens.
It is ridiculous that citizens have to pay for access to laws or regulations when they pay taxes. It is their basic right to have free access to regulations such as the National Building Code. I am dumbfounded. This set of standards is only available for sale? For heavens sake, we want people using it, and we want our standards known …. All builders should follow the National Building Code so it should be available online for free. I am an apprentice going through training right now and I was required to download the NBC.
That part I do not have a problem with. As a carpenter, it is our job to know the code.

We download tools all the time to make sure the job is done correctly and efficiently. The NBC is just that, a tool. It gives us the information we need to do the job correctly the first time. So downloading another tool is just part of the job for me.
One thing I would like to have is an app on my phone that has the entirety of the NBC so I can easily access the information I need on the job without having to lug a giant book everywhere I go. Then make it free to access with the number given with your already downloadd codebook.
I would like to use the NECB more often and be nice to have open access at no cost and not beg, borrow, ask advice. Since the Building Codes are to the benefit of anyone occupying a building for any purpose they should be free for online access which costs the least to produce and updates the easiest and paid for by a small amount added to property taxes.
It should be free to download or viewed by every one, just same like the city by law. How funny is that. Apparently, the NBC is not law, and has no force of law until adopted by a municipality.
Interesting but true. A primary responsibility of government is to inform citizens of their rights AND their responsibilities.
National Building Code of Canada
Codes need to be available online for free. We all pay more than enough taxes to cover this cost times over.
People in the construction industry need access to codes so they can do their jobs properly. Canadian and Provincial building codes should be free to view and copy on-line just as all laws, acts and regulations should be. This is our corrupt government for you!!!! To say the least it is another form of taxation.
Interpretation especially between Building inspectors on how they interpret how the code is written can make things difficult on any project imho. So that people can understand that work they are getting done in their home is legal and safe for their family especially for kids.
Most ridiculous thing…….
I am not a contractor, but was merely interested in some of the issues contained in the Code. They should be free to Contractors and the general public. Everything else is, such as various federal regulations, Acts, etc. Especially in this time when everyone accesses the internet for information. I cannot imagine how time-consuming it would be for a contractor to haul out a book which they would have to have with them at all times, just to check a certain section.
The reason the National Canadian building code is to readily available is because the Government does not want the public to know their rights. This is like the government setting speed limits for the roads but not giving the public access to see what the limits are unless you pay for a monthly subscription to view the speed limits. Then the government expects you to believe that this is all done to increase safety, but it starts to look more like a big tax grab. I cannot be expected to follow the rules if i do not know or have access to the rules.
This is not an extreme exaggeration. Which gouging Canadian Government brought this gouge in? I am in the process of designing my new house. I feel that I should be able to review all the regulations for the construction of my new home for free. It is available at the Halifax Library 1 copy but it cannot be taken out from the library or copied.
Who is going to sit in the library reading hundreds of pages. The national building code and any other government issued rules and regulations should without a bout be free online.
These are important document pertaining to the minimum standards of construction. A homeowner or anyone else for that matter should be able to review them to insure their house is up to code.
For example homes in Calgary receive very few inspections. Fort St. John when I lived their had no electrical inspector for the ten years I lived there.
All rules and regulations implemented by our government should be free to the public under freedom of information. Beyond my comprehension that the plumbing code is not available free, online. Does the government work for the people or the other way around? We pay our taxes Yes, I pay a lot… so just put the code online.
There is incredible value in having the resources you need at hand when estimating, quoting, and performing scope of work on a project. I WILL download one out of sheer necessity but it is my opinion that charging contractors and any us citizens for that information is counterproductive and blatantly foolish.
National Building Code should be available online, free of charge!

Code publications produced by Codes Canada are available free in electronic format and for download in printed format.This was adopted by the various provinces and municipalities in Canada during the next 20 years. I think it is absurd that we are held to a standard but unless we pay the government hundreds of dollars, we will not be allowed to know what that standard is.
It takes a lot of time to search for a topic in the Code from a hard copy. Please note: Do not submit your order more than once. The editing made it appear that Zimmerman volunteered that Martin was black, rather than merely responding to the dispatcher's inquiry, which would support a view that the shooting was racially motivated.
A homeowner or anyone else for that matter should be able to review them to insure their house is up to code. The NBC is divided into two Volumes and has been re-organized to consolidate relevant information. Another sample is Washington State in US. Non direct olympics games cost e.
