An update from the 2012 Building Code, Ontario's 2024 Building Code will come into effect on January 1, 2025.

Ontario has announced that it is planning to release the 2024 edition of the Building Code next week, while the 2024 Building Code will come into effect on January 1, 2025.

Announced in CodeNews, an online newsletter issued by the Building and Development Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the newsletter notes that there will be an additional transition period allowing permit applicants to continue to use the 2012 Building Code for applications submitted before March 31, 2025, if applicants can demonstrate that their working plans were substantially completed under the 2012 Building Code prior to December 31, 2024.

More details about the transition period and training opportunities will be shared in the coming weeks.

The new Ontario Building Code will be released in digital and hardcopy versions to support the industry’s transition and ensure applicants have sufficient time to become familiar with the new edition of the Building Code before it comes into effect in 2025.
