Obligatory requirements

Are any terms and conditions imposed or implied by law or mandatory in contracts for the design or carrying out of building works?



Although the National Building Code of Canada has no legal status, substantial parts of the Code have been adopted by many jurisdictions in Canada, within provincial building codes.  However, building codes do vary significantly in some areas from province to province. In addition, the Code applies to construction that falls under the federal jurisdiction of Canada, such as military bases, federal government land and airports.
