        This is also the case in Calgary, however, in rural areas for industrial projects we get it as part of the soil report along with cement type (for soluble sulphates, etc.).

In general it is up to the local municipality to define frost penetration.  The UFC 3-310-04 available on line at the Whole Building Design Guide lists Seattle at 9" for frost penetration.
