National Building Code (NBC)


As with the CEC Codes section, this is just a reference to the sections of the code. Once again refer to your own book for specific details. As a notable mention, there is the release of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada in late 2015 or early 2016.

Please keep in mind that this area of our journey outlines where devices are installed, and how. For instance, a receptacle mounted at a certain height, and how far apart. You won't find this information in the Canadian Electrical Code. Keep this in mind if you're driving yourself crazy trying to find it in the code. It's not there.
