The Province has issued an update on the implementation of the Building Act. The update provides information on upcoming changes under Section 5 of the Building Act, amending or repealing building requirements in bylaws, and the updated timeline for building official qualifications.

The bulletin clarifies Section 5 restrictions as well as unrestricted matters. It also notes that the timeline for enacting the Building Act’s qualification requirements for building officials has shifted. The Province now anticipates the qualification requirements will be brought into force late in 2016.
