Building, Accessibility and Energy Standards

The Government of Saskatchewan recently passed The Construction Codes Act (Bill 4) in the Legislative Assembly. The new CCA comes into effect on January 1, 2022, and will repeal and replace The Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act.

For more information, read the May 11, 2021, media release.

The Codes and Standards that apply to the construction, renovation and the fire safe operation of buildings throughout Saskatchewan include:

  • National Building Code
  • National Fire Code
  • National Energy Code for Buildings

Application of Codes and Standards are a shared responsibility between:

  1. Building owners – responsible for compliance with the standards
  2. Municipalities – responsible for administration and enforcement of standards
  3. Building officials – provide services to municipalities
  4. Government – provides legislative, regulatory and policy framework
  5. Architects, engineers and contractors – provide services to building owners
