To help code users understand the code provisions, the Northwest Territories Architect Association, in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), is offering seminars on major technical changes in these documents. The seminars are designed to help code users familiarize themselves with the new code features and technical updates. They will address major changes including:

  • fire protection and safety

  • mid-rise combustible construction
  • structural and seismic
  • building envelope
  • airborne sound transmission
  • accessibility and stairs,
