I live in Grande Prairie Alberta Canada and was wondering if anyone knew of the plumbing code for the spacing from center of toilet drain to wall on the side and on the back .And if there is a min or max to these dimensions

Thank you so much again guys much appreciated

So the most common toilets for as far as the back wall is 12" and 10" from the wall surface to centre of flange. I would say here 12" is most common by far.

As far as the sides go usually no less then 15" is what I like but you can get away with 12" if your toilet will fit (most new ones will). Thats pretty tight though. As far as code I could not really see anything dealing with residential side spacings in my building code book but there may be.
