Energy Requirements

Energy Compliance

On January 1, 2019, the Province of Saskatchewan is implementing the 2017 National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) and Section 9.36 of the 2015 National Building Code. The new energy requirements will apply to building and development permit applications received on or after January 1, 2019 for new buildings and additions.

The City of Saskatoon Building Standards Division played a key role in a province-wide initiative to develop a consistent framework for implementation of energy requirements in Saskatchewan. The stakeholder group worked together to develop a provincial guidance document on the implementation of the energy code, which includes sample templates for municipalities to use across the province. 

The City of Saskatoon Energy Framework Guide as well as the following compliance forms for Section 9.36 of the NBC and the National Energy Code for Buildings will provide details how energy compliance may apply to your project.

The National Energy Code for Buildings Compliance form indicates requirements for increased energy efficiency for buildings to address primary objectives of resource conservation and excessive use of energy.

The City of Saskatoon's Energy Efficiency Handbook provides details on how energy compliance may apply to your project.
