Useful information

The Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) issues licenses to building contractors and owner-builders. Before hiring a contractor for your renovation or construction work, check to see if they have a valid license. To do this, enter its license number in the Register of license holders (By company section) .

Why hire a licensed contractor? Did you get a quote from a contractor to install a heat pump, change your roof, renovate your bathroom or kitchen, replace your doors and windows or do any other work on your property? Before signing a contract, protect your money by hiring a contractor licensed by the RBQ. This gives you access to a financial guarantee in the event of a dispute.

Check the validity of a contractor's RBQ license

You will find in the register all holders with a valid license, whether you are looking for a general contractor, a specialized contractor or an owner-builder. Each sheet includes the following information:

Check if an entrepreneur has complaints to the Office de la protection du consommateur

Check the validity of liability insurance

Check references from previous clients
