Offering financial guarantees

All contractors who hold a licence issued by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec, the Corporation des maîtres mécaniciens en tuyauterie du Québec or the Corporation des maîtres électriciens du Québec must offer financial guarantees. 

These guarantees are dependent on obtaining a licence.

Licence security

All contractors must have licence security

The required security amounts are as follows:

  • $40,000 for general contractors
  • $20,000 for specialized contractors

Licence security makes it possible to compensate consumers, in particular in the event of faulty performance or non-performance of construction work, or for partial payments made.
