The Model National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 1997 (MNECB) is intended to help you design energy-efficient buildings that minimize air-conditioning and heating bills given construction cost trade-offs. The Code contains cost-effective minimum requirements for energy efficiency in new buildings. The MNECB applies to all buildings, other than houses of three storeys or less, and to additions of more than 10 m2 to such buildings. One of a pair of energy codes, the MNECB applies to heated or cooled buildings other than those covered by the Model National Energy Code for Houses (MNECH).

The MNECB, by considering climate, fuel types and costs, and regional construction costs, establishes minimum standards that can be adopted as regulations by the appropriate provincial or territorial authorities or simply used as sound energy conservation practice in construction by both industry and corporations. The Code applies to new construction or additions, but not to alterations or renovations of existing buildings (unless they are so extensive that they amount to new construction).
