FONOM supports building code amendment
The Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities says an amendment to the Ontario Building Code should benefit the north. The proposed change allows buildings up to six storeys to be made from wood, an increase from the current four storeys. If the legislation passes a hearing stage, FONOM, says it means Northern Ontario can supply more wood for building materials. The amendment was proposed by Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli as a Private Member’s Bill.
