CSAlogoThe Canadian Standards Association is pleased to announce that the draft new edition of CSA Z8000 Canadian health care facilities is now at the Public Review stage.  Since it was first released in 2011 this standard has quickly become a common reference for health care facilities across the country.  It is increasingly referenced in Provincial/Territorial planning documents and RFPs, and is becoming a major influence in Canadian health care facility planning, design, and construction.

The 2017 schedule for the Canadian Healthcare Construction Course has now been posted.
