• New Construction Codes Act Coming to Saskatchewan

    The Government of Saskatchewan recently passed The Construction Codes Act (Bill 4) in the Legislative Assembly.  The new Act will allow better alignment between construction codes and accessibility standards, including how they are applied to buildings, ensuring people with disabilities can better access and use buildings in Saskatchewan.

    The new Construction Codes Act (CCA) repeals and replaces The Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act and will come into effect on January 1, 2022.

    "Modernization of this legislation should make building code issues easier for industry to navigate," Saskatchewan Construction Association President and CEO Mark Cooper said.  "We applaud the inclusion of a mechanism for appeal where contractors' interpretations differ from other officials, which should drive better results for all stakeholders."
