Canadian Board for Harmonized Construction Codes

Staff from the Building and Safety Standards Branch made members aware of changes to the national code development system through previous presentations at Association zone meetings and conferences.

The Canadian Board for Harmonized Construction Codes (CBHCC) is the new body responsible for the development of Canada’s National Model Codes, which contain objectives related to health, safety, the protection of buildings from fire and structural damage and the protection of the environment.

The CBHCC, which is made up of representatives from provincial, territorial, and federal public services, approves the content of the National Model Codes and works within a system of groups that provide oversight, advice, and develop proposed changes.
