Canada’s National Model Codes focus on health, safety, accessibility, the protection of buildings from fire or structural damage, and the protection of the environment.
The Canadian Board for Harmonized Construction Codes (CBHCC) develops the National Model Codes, which are published by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). For the latest information about code changes and provisions in the National Model Codes or details about the National Model Codes development system, please visit the code development system website.
Codes and user's guides published by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) are available directly through the NRC Publications Archive in free electronic format. To access the electronic documents, visit the online collection of Codes Canada publications in the archive.
