dc.description.abstractEngineered wood products, such as Glulam, Laminated Veneer Lumber, Oriented Strand lumber and Cross Laminated Timber, are increasingly being utilized for construction purposes both domestically and abroad. Mass timber building projects have been increasing in Canada through a variety of government – funded building initiatives and private sector research. The National Building Code of Canada has historically been a limitation for mass timber building structures which primarily use engineered wood products, however recent updates to the code allow for taller wooden structures. Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec now allow 6 storey wood framed buildings. Showcase projects, using exemptions in the code, such as Brock Commons Tallwood House (18 storeys) in Vancouver, B.C. have demonstrated the benefits of mass timber construction. Overall the engineered wood products industry in Canada has been improving since the recent recession, and is expected to improve with new research and developments in engineered wood products.en_US
