National Construction Codes
On January 1, 2024, the new Manitoba Building, Plumbing, Energy and Fire Codes will be in effect. See the 2024 construction codes implementation bulletin to learn about how the new codes will apply to your project.
Le 1er janvier 2024, les nouveaux codes du bâtiment, de la plomberie, de l’énergie et de la prévention des incendies du Manitoba entreront en vigueur. Consultez le bulletin sur la mise en œuvre des codes de construction de 2024 pour savoir comment les nouveaux codes s’appliqueront à votre projet.
The currently enforced 2010 National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) addresses the design and construction of new buildings and the substantial renovation of existing buildings. In 2011, Manitoba adopted the 2010 NBCC as the Manitoba Building Code (MBC) that included the Manitoba amendments.
Can I submit building permit applications using the 2015 or the 2020 National Building Code in Manitoba?
Not yet. The 2020 NBCC will be adopted for construction in Manitoba on January 1, 2024. See the 2024 Building Code Implementation bulletin. The 2015 NBCC was not adopted for construction in Manitoba.
The Manitoba Office of the Fire Commissioner is responsible for adoption of the NBCC in the province. Information on current Code adoption can be found in the "Codes and Standards" section at the Office of the Fire Commissioner.
