Abstract : At the beginning of August, the new Canadian Code for Residential Construction, which regulates all housing and small buildings built under the National Housing Act, became generally available in English. The French version followed. But it is a long and somewhat detailed document and, for convenience, listed are some of the major changes made in the requirements as compared with the previous Housing Standards which it replaces.
