Ontario Members - Upcoming Launch of the Next Edition of the Building Code


Upcoming Launch of the Next Edition of the Building Code


Ontario is planning to release the 2024 edition of the Building Code next week to reduce regulatory burdens for the construction industry and make it easier to build housing. 


The 2024 Building Code will come into effect on January 1, 2025. There will be an additional transition period allowing permit applicants to continue to use the 2012 Building Code for applications submitted before March 31, 2025, if applicants can demonstrate that their working plans were substantially completed under the 2012 Building Code prior to December 31, 2024. More details about the transition period and training opportunities will be shared in the coming weeks.


The new Building Code will be released in digital and hardcopy versions to support the industry's transition and ensure applicants have sufficient time to become familiar with the new edition of the Building Code before it comes into effect on January 1, 2025.


The province will continue working with partners to maintain high standards in Ontario's Building Code and make it easier for the sector to build new homes, while protecting public health and safety.
