The province will adapt the 2020 plumbing, building, energy and fire codes as of Jan. 1, 2024.

The Manitoba government has announced that it will adopt the 2020 national model codes for plumbing, building, fire and energy as published by the National Research Council as of Jan. 1, 2024.

In a government news release, it was indicated that public consultations conducted last winter and again in June identified that industry professionals preferred to adopt the 2020 code sooner, bypassing the 2015 edition.

Labour and Immigration Minister Jon Reyes noted: Implementing the codes by Jan. 1, 2024, meets the Manitoba government’s commitment to have new codes in place by March 31, 2024, as per the Regulatory Reconciliation and Cooperation Table agreement under the Canada Free Trade Agreement.
