For use in Quebec.

The Québec Electrical Code is comprised of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I as adopted in the Province of Quebec. It includes Quebec provincial amendments.

By the Regulation amending the Construction Code (Order in Council 1062-2010 of December 1st, 2010), the Government subsequently approved the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (21st Edition), with the applicable Québec amendments. That Code replaces the 20th Edition and came into force on March 1, 2011.

A free pocketbook related to the CE Code and to the Québec Construction Code, Chapter V - Electricity is included with the this Code.

The Quebec amendments are published on blue pages and are incorporated at the beginning of the Canadian Electrical Code. A fleur de lys followed by the word "Amended" in the left margin of the Canadian Electrical Code indicates to Quebec users that these Rules have been amended for Quebec.

The Canadian Electrical Code, Part I is adopted across Canada as regulation for the installation and maintenance of electrical equipment. It is integrated with CSA electrical equipment standards (collectively known as the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II) to ensure that electrical products evaluated in accordance with the applicable Part II standard are suitable for installation in accordance with the Rules of Part I.

This Code is not intended as a design specification nor as an instruction manual for untrained persons.

The Canadian Electrical Code, Part I covers all electrical work and electrical equipment operating or intended to operate at all voltages in electrical installations for buildings, structures, and premises, including factory-built relocatable and non-relocatable structures, and self-propelled marine vessels stationary for periods exceeding five months and connected to a shore supply of electricity continuously or from time to time, with the following exceptions:
  • a) installations or equipment employed by an electric, communication, or community antenna distribution system utility in the exercise of its function as a utility, as recognized by the regulatory authority having jurisdiction, and located outdoors or in buildings or sections of buildings used for that purpose;
  • b) equipment and facilities that are used in the operation of an electric railway and are supplied exclusively from circuits that supply the motive power;
  • c) installations or equipment used for railway signalling and railway communication purposes, and located outdoors or in buildings or sections of buildings used exclusively for such installations;
  • d) aircraft; and
  • e) electrical systems in ships that are regulated under Transport Canada. For mines and quarry applications, see also CAN/CSA-M421.
This Code and any standards referenced in it do not make or imply any assurance or guarantee by the authority adopting this Code with respect to life expectancy, durability, or operating performance of equipment and materials so referenced. The Code meets the fundamental safety principles of International Standard IEC 60364, Electrical Installations of Buildings.

New to the 21st Edition:
  • A new Section 58 was added to cover requirements for passenger ropeways and similar equipment. In addition, there are significant changes to Sections 0, 10, 18, 26, 46, and 68. Sections 12 and 32 have been revised to reflect new technology and industry practices.
  • The designation for receptacle configuration type 5-20RA ("T-slot") has been revised to 5-20R throughout the Code, and the configuration previously designated as 5-20R is now designated 5-20RA to recognize that this configuration is being phased out. Similarly, the designations for 6-20R and 6-20RA configurations have been interchanged throughout the Code.
  • The term "light fixture" has been replaced by "luminaire" throughout the Code, and all references to HFT conduit have been deleted.
The 21st Edition was approved by the Committee on the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, and by the Regulatory Authority Committee at their June 2008 meetings in Calgary, Alberta. This twenty-first edition supersedes the previous editions, published in 2006, 2002, 1998, 1994, 1990, 1986, 1982, 1978, 1975, 1972, 1969, 1966, 1962, 1958, 1953, 1947, 1939, 1935, 1930, and 1927.
