Why CSA?

CSA Group is a trusted leader in standards development for the construction industry

For over 100 years, CSA Group has produced standards behind the design and construction of buildings and infrastructure including structural design, systems and resiliency, and manufacture and certification of construction products. Today we have more than 250 standards – many referenced in legislation and construction specifications – that help safeguard human life and contribute to the progressive improvement of the construction industry.

CSA Group’s robust and inclusive standards development process and decades of experience mean you can count on us to ensure safe construction of structures and improve the performance of construction products.

We continue to innovate through working with thought leaders to find solutions that help industry, designers, government, and other organizations tackle some of Canada’s most pressing issues. Our collaboration with stakeholders has helped inform standards that support a built environment more resilient to the impacts of climate change, help advance high-rise modular construction, and underpin circularity in construction.
