This document, published by NRC in collaboration with the Régie du bâtiment du Québec, includes the amendments to Chapter I, Building, of the Construction Code, as well as an amended NBC. The amended NBC clearly indicates to readers the 300 changes adopted by Quebec, which apply to the construction or renovation of buildings in that province.

As in the case of the NBC, an objective-based approach was used to prepare this edition of the Construction Code. The majority of the Code provisions are linked to objectives that describe the overall goals that the Code provisions are intended to achieve and to functional statements that describe conditions that help satisfy the objectives. This new information allows for flexibility by helping users evaluate alternative solutions to acceptable solutions described in the Code.
