AbstractThe Canadian jurisdictional system usually involves three or four levels of government, each with its own regulatory responsibilities involving buildings. This system complicates the economic trade-off process. Models can be used to evaluate the economic impact of building codes and regulations within the Canadian jurisdictional system. They can assist in the assessment of economic trade-off situations. A model suggested earlier for use in the Canadian context is applied to situations arising from the National Building Code, measures for energy conservation and the use of a specific insulating material.
