Ontario building code?


Does anyone from Toronto, Ontario, Canada know a place that you can rent the building code book? I don't want to spent $150 to buy it just to writ the test. Thanks

can't speak for Canada, but in the states a lot of libraries have code books that you can check out, worth a check

what test? most code tests they have to provide you with a copy. its not to see if you know the code. but to see if you know how to look things up in it. thats how it is for the I.P exam for trademan writing for their red seal

GBrackins, here in Toronto, we're not allowed to check it out, it's "Reference Only."
woodworkbykirk, it's for a MMAH certificate (Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing) which you take a course and writ the exam in a college in my case Humber College, where we have to have our own book

You can go to your local libraries. Can’t say they will be up to date though….

I went to Humber and had to buy the book so we could use it in class and have open book exam with it.

Humber has a used book store. I'm pretty sure most uni's and college's too do.

Also you may want to give these guys a try

if they expect you to provide the book its a sham.. unless its something you will have to be referring to constantly which may be the case
for myself im a licensed carpenter who works in high end renos`, were constantly running into code things, most often though the engineer or architect specs things for us.. sometimes the architects specs aren`t up to snuff in that case the engineer specs something better. rarely is it do to inspectors though

It all depends on what class you’re taking; my class required the purchase of the OBC because we constantly used it for reference and would have open book tests and exams.

Man it’s been a lot of years and I have to see if I still have it around somewhere. If I do, it won’t be up to date.
