Abstract
National Building Code of Canada (NBC) 2020 is the latest edition of the national model code that will be published towards the end of 2021. Based on the best available information from the Standing Committee on Earthquake Design (SCED) at the time of writing this report, the seismic design demand in the NBC 2020 has increased for all site classes for many locations across the country. Also, there are other changes in NBC 2020 that might impact the seismic analysis and design of timber buildings. The main objective of this report is to compare the NBC 2020 to the 2015 edition, with emphasis on the level of the seismic design loads (demands), and potential impacts on the analysis and design of timber buildings.

Abstract
Technological innovation has proven to be the prime vehicule for the remarkable development of the wood composite panel industry in Canada over the last half century. The challenge for the future is to maintain the place and to make appropriate choices in setting the direction of technological innovation. The Roadmap is intended to help the industry meet this challenge by establishing the importance of innovation to the major sectors in the panel industry and identifies new and promising technologies along with suggested priorities for the future. This document also lays out recommendations related to infrastructure and organization that may help the various sectors of the industry shift into high gear and assume a leadership role. The panel types included are: softwood plywood, oriented strandboard (OSB), particleboard and medium density fibreboard (MDF). Hardwood plywood is covered in less detail. Hybrid products which combine two or more panels, or panels with other materials, into a single product are also mentioned.
