In 2019, the Committee completed a review of the Manitoba Technical Bulletins with the Manitoba Association of Architects. These are available for review and printing. In addition, the WCA Standard Practices Committee has several documents that are NOT endorsed by other professional organizations at this time, but which are nonetheless important for the industry.
