New Vancouver Building Bylaw will take effect on January 1, 2015

On April 1, 2014, Vancouver City Council adopted the 2012 British Columbia Building Code (BCBC) with additional requirements and revisions specific to Vancouver, which takes effect January 1, 2015.

Developed in consultation with industry professionals, the new 2014 Building Bylaw 10908 includes amendments to the current Building Bylaw 9419 to improve housing for seniors and people with disabilities, while supporting the objectives of the Greenest City 2020 Action Plan.

The complete 2014 Building Bylaw will soon be available through the Queen’s Printer.
