still have to figure out what the equivalent is here in Canada),


Hi,
In Canada the National Buiding Code (2005 is the latest) contains all of the requirements for accessible (called 'barrier-free' in the Code) bathrooms, kitchens etc. Actually it contains all the requirements for barrier-free access everywhere inside the home as well as all other building types. Where you live, the Ontario Government has adopted most of the national code requirements and has ammended /added some requirements to create the Ontario Building Code.
Hope this helps!
James
