The Régie du bâtiment du Québec’s license is mandatory
In Quebec, all businesses involved in general residential renovation must have a license from the Régie du bâtiment du Québec. It is a legal obligation to protect consumers against fraudulent, incompetent or careless businesses.
General Renovation Contractors who carry out expansions, kitchens, bathrooms and other alterations to residential buildings must have an RBQ license in the categories 1.2 and 1.3
A license that has to be earned
Before issuing the license, the board checks whether the directors of the company have already been involved in a bankruptcy. In this case, the Régie may refuse to issue or renew a license. The RBQ can also suspend or cancel the license if one of the directors has been or is involved in a bankruptcy.
The Régi shall issue a license only after ensuring that the contractor has the necessary knowledge regarding the administration, safety and technical aspects of the work covered by its license.
The Régie checks the solvency of the company. It requires a bond of $ 40,000 to compensate consumers in case of fraud, peculation or embezzlement.
