The National Fire Code of Canada (NFC) is adopted as the minimum standard for the fire safe operation of buildings and facilities. The NFC is adopted by Canadian provinces and territories with or without modifications. For information on how the national model codes (building, fire and plumbing) are adopted in the various provinces and territories across Canada, visit the Canadian Codes Centre on the National Research Council Canada website.
The NFC establishes provisions to address the following three core objectives:
- fire protection of buildings and facilities
