RBQ: Why a license?

The Régie du bâtiment du Québec plays a major role in the construction sector: it ensures not only the work quality, but also your physical safety and your protection as a consumer. The RBQ thus plays several roles in the daily lives of citizens.

The Building Act requires any construction contractor who offers services to perform or have work done in Quebec must have a valid license.

RBQ: What is license bond?

The license bond is intended to compensate any customer who has suffered a loss as a result of the non-performance or performance of construction work and resulting directly from down payments, non-completion of work, and defects discovered in the year following the end of the work.

The guarantee of license is obligatory for all the contractors.

The license bond is a financial guarantee that the contractor obtains from an association, an insurance company or a financial institution to guarantee the performance of its contractual obligations to its customers.
