AbstractThe National Building Code of Canada is sixty years old this year. In 1941, a group led by engineers and scientists at the National Research Council published the first edition. It quickly became a major foundation of the federal government's war-time construction effort. Afterwards, the National Research Council continued to provide engineering and research support for its development and today it is the basis for all of the provincial and territorial building codes in Canada. It has reached a level of maturity that gives it world-wide respect as a model for regulation.
