Draft regulations are published in the Gazette officielle du Québec prior to their adoption in order to obtain the public’s comments, which will then be analyzed by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ).

Regulation to amend the Construction Code

On July 10, 2019, the draft Regulation to amend the Construction Code has been published in the Gazette officielle du Québec in order to gather comments from the public.

This regulation is designed to increase the energy efficiency requirements for new (and enlargements) commercial, institutional and industrial buildings as well as big residential buildings.

These requirements concern the building envelope, lighting, heating, ventilating or air-conditioning systems, service water heating and transformers and electrical motors. The draft Regulation follows up on the commitments described in the 2013-2020 Action Plan on Climate Change.

Essentially, this regulation will:

  • add the Chapter I.1, Energy Efficiency of Buildings, to the Construction Code (Chapter B 1.1, r. 2)
  • incorporate by reference the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2015 (NECB), which was amended to meet the specific needs of Québec.
