Acceptable types of security

The Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) invites you to consult the table that shows the acceptable types of security and documents required. If you obtain licence security from a financial institution, only the following security forms mentioned in table will be accepted. For the time being, an irrevocable and unconditional letter of credit issued by a financial institution (a letter of guarantee from a bank) is not one of the security forms accepted by the RBQ.

The original certificate of a licence security must be sent to the RBQ by mail, at the address provided on the page Contact Us
