The Canadian Wood Council (CWC) represents the Canadian wood products industry through a national federation of associations. The Mission of the CWC is to expand market access and increase demand for Canadian wood products through excellence in codes, standards, regulations and education. The CWC provides technical and knowledge transfer services relating to building codes, standards and regulations. The CWC is active in a technical capacity in all areas of the Regulatory System: building codes, design standards, product standards, test standards.

A core role of the CWC is to act as the conduit for the transfer of technical knowledge for the people (builders, architects, engineers) who specify wood in construction. CWC does this by:

- Developing and disseminating essential technical tools and field support needed to design with wood. This includes technical manuals, web tools, design software and a HelpDesk option (
- Operating a pan-Canadian construction sector education program, with market partners, under the name of Wood WORKS!, Cecobois in Quebec. The Wood WORKS! program plays a vital role in broadening wood’s use in construction by working closely with the building community and governments for wood’s broader use.

JELD-WEN was founded by Richard ”Dick” Wendt, an entrepreneur at heart, who learned the art of managing a manufacturing company under the tutelage of his father, Caradco executive Lester Wendt. In 1957, Iowa-based Caradco sent Dick to Oregon to help run the company’s millwork plant in Klamath Falls. Caradco decided to sell the plant at auction. Dick and four business partners, Larry Wetter, John Biehn, Gerry Wickersham, and Bill Taylor bought many of the assets on October 25, 1960 and named the new company JELD-WEN. One secret of the initial success of JELD-WEN was the company’s resourcefulness and deliberate decision to use for a high-value purpose every last bit of raw resource that entered its doors, a philosophy that still stands true today.

Today JELD-WEN employs approximately 21,000 people worldwide and has manufacturing, distribution and showroom locations across the United States and in 24 countries, located primarily in North America, Europe and Australia.

Free electronic access to National Building Codes! Codes Canada Publications are developed by experts, for experts, through a collaborative process that is over 75 years in the making. They build on the best expertise from across Canada and around the world to provide effective building and safety regulations that are harmonized across Canada. They make sure that Canadians’ health and safety are protected whenever their homes, places of work and other buildings are built or renovated. 

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes is responsible for the development of Codes Canada publications. The National Research Council (NRC) publishes the Codes and, through Codes Canada, ensures that these national models are responsive to new technologies, materials, construction practices, research, social policy, and the changing needs of Canadian society. In order to fully support ongoing and future building code development work, the Government of Canada provided funding that allows the NRC to provide free electronic access to the National Building Code , the National Fire Code , the National Plumbing Code , and the National Energy Code for Buildings , as well as the provincial codes published by the NRC. Paper copies are offered at a reduced cost. The goal of this initiative is to reduce barriers to trade and encourage provinces and territories to align building codes across the country. The Government is continuing to work with provinces and territories towards the timely adoption of the national codes in a way that ensures that the needs of provinces, territories and Canadians are met.
