Engineering Codes, Standards & Specifications Guide Ask Us

Guide Sections



In Canada, engineering codes are crucial frameworks that set standards, guidelines, and ethical norms across various sectors to ensure safety, functionality, and integrity. These include federal and provincial legislated codes and the Engineers Canada Code of Ethics, which upholds professionalism and public welfare. Primary users—professional engineers, engineering firms, regulatory bodies, and educational institutions—must adhere to these codes to ensure projects meet stringent quality, safety, and ethical standards. Such adherence is essential for maintaining public trust and promoting environmental stewardship within engineering.

Below is a list of Canadian codes available at UNB Libraries.
