The 2010 edition of the National Building Code of Canada (NBC) incorporates significant technical changes from the 2005 edition. The NBC sets out technical provisions for the design and construction of new buildings. It also applies to the alteration, change of use and demolition of existing buildings.

The NBC is available in two volumes. Volume 1 contains Division A (compliance options, objectives, functional statements) and its appendix, Division C (administrative provisions) and its appendix as well as a new section containing the attributions to the acceptable solutions. Volume 2 contains Division B (acceptable solutions) and its appendices as well as the index.

The NBC 2010 complements the National Fire Code of Canada 2010. Both are indispensable for officials, educators and construction professionals.
