How does the Canadian NBC or engineering practice address the weight of glaze ice on structural components for vertical, wind, and seismic? The NBCC and Alberta Code I've got access to don't seem to even mention ice loading at all--which I find surprising given how much of Canada is so far north. I've got an industrial trussed platform in northern Alberta with grating catwalks where icing could represent a significant load. I'm following ASCE7-16 procedure for ice and wind-on-ice but used ice values from eastern Montana hoping that's reasonable for the site in Alberta just to get a design started.
