This document, published by NRC in collaboration with the Régie du bâtiment du Québec, includes the amendments to Chapter VIII, Building, of the Quebec Safety Code, as well as an amended National Fire Code of Canada 2010 (NFC). Its contents include more stringent Quebec-specific provisions to improve fire safety in sleeping rooms and care occupancies, as well as provisions regarding the inspection and maintenance of building façades, multi-storey garages and water-cooling towers. The amended NFC clearly indicates the changes adopted by Quebec, which apply to the construction and renovation of buildings in that province.

As in the case of the NFC, an objective-based approach was used to prepare Chapter VII, Building. The majority of the Code provisions are linked to objectives that describe the overall goals that the 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.
