National Construction Codes
The 2010 National Building Code of Canada (NBC) addresses the design and construction of new buildings and the substantial renovation of existing buildings. In 2011, Manitoba adopted the National Building Code as the Manitoba Building Code (MBC) that included the Manitoba amendments. The NBC is available for purchase from the National Research Council and the MBC is available at no charge through the Office of the Fire Commissioner www.firecomm.gov.mb.ca/codes_legislation.html.
