AbstractThe National Building Code is an advisory document drafted in the form of a building by-law, that is publsihed at cost by the National Research Council as a service to the provinces and municipalities of Canada. Only when adopted or enacted by an appropriate municipal by-law does the National Building Code have legal effect. With the willing and expert assistance of authorities in all provinces, the Associate Committee has been guided in its efforts so to frame the National Building Code that it is in close accord with such provincial legislation, and in such form that it can be readily and properly put to legal use by municipalities throughout the country.
