Islanders invited to comment on the New Prince Edward Island Building Code Regulations
The public is invited to provide input on new draft regulations under the Prince Edward Island Building Codes Act. The Act will support Islanders by allowing for consistent building regulations as PEI is adopting both the National Building Code of Canada and the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings.
Together the Act and accompanying regulations outline the requirements and procedures for issuing and acquiring building permits. The Act and regulations will also list the requirements for the qualifications of building officials.
“Prince Edward Island will adopt the National Building Code, which outlines minimum standards for the design, construction, alterations and demolitions across PEI.” said Bloyce Thompson, Minister of Agriculture and Land. “The province puts the health, safety, energy conservation, accessibility, and protection of all Islanders at the forefront.”
The province will be reaching out to stakeholders and the general public for consultations.
