In Quebec, a construction contractor must hold a licence issued by the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec (R.B.Q.) to carry on any type of construction work, and yes, it includes residential renovations.
The fines applicable for working without a licence were recently substantially increased. Fines are the tool of choice used by authorities to discourage such actions.
– As an example, anyone who does not respect the Law and carry on construction work without a licence, is liable to a fine of 10 000$ up to 75 000$ in case of an individual, and of 30 000$ up to 150 000$ for a legal entity.
– Most of these laws are in force since the 9th of December 2011.
