AbstractThis survey was started in 1956 to provide the basis for refinement of the design snow loads given in the National Building Code of Canada. The first report, in 1956, presented a discussion of the snow load requirements in the 1953 National Building Code and proposed a survey of snow loads on roofs. Since that time the survey has been carried out annually with the help of many observers across Canada. This report gives a summary of all observations taken during the 1964-65 winter.
