Article Summary: 

Saskatchewan's Construction Codes Act (CCA) came into effect January 1st, 2022 and replaces The Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act. It assigns responsibility to the different stakeholders involved in building construction, including building owners, building officials, architects, engineers and contractors, local authorities, and government. Key updates include the ability for local authorities to register an interest on a building title for unresolved building official orders, and the option to develop their own building bylaws. The Construction Codes Act was passed by the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan last year to align construction codes and accessibility standards with how they are applied to buildings. It allows for regional co-operation between local authorities to execute and enforce construction standards across multiple jurisdictions, and grants the Minister of Government Relations the ability to make binding interpretations on construction codes. This allows for easier understanding and implementation of the standards while reducing government red tape.
