Summary of Proposal:
A new path forward for building code services
The $38 billion building industry sector is a key driver of Ontario's economy and stakeholders have raised concerns about the need for better, modern and timely services and resources to support their ability to understand and apply the highly technical and complex Building Code requirements.
Supporting an increase of housing supply, supporting jobs, and streamlining development approvals are top priorities for the government.
To help achieve this, the government is considering new and improved Building Code services which would be delivered by an administrative authority to provide modern, efficient, user-centric services to the building sector and streamline customer service to all people across Ontario who use the Building Code.
