The purpose of this housing report is to inform builders of ongoing research, to provide status reports on completed projects, many of them being long term, and to report on code development activities, especially the reviews that take place in the consideration of proposed code changes. For over 65 years, NRC has provided a competitive advantage to the industry by addressing uniquely Canadian problems and advancing technologies to improve building performance, safety and comfort. If Canada is to become one of the top urbanization markets in the next five to six years as has been projected, the industry needs to position itself today to exploit the new business opportunities this will offer. NRC is working closely with stakeholders, collaborators and clients in construction and related industries to ensure they continue to be important players as markets evolve.
