The Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) keeps the Licence holders' repertory which can be used:
We wish to inform you that the issue date on the licence is the date of issuance of the final licence. To know how many years of experience a company has or the number of years a company is established you should refer to the Registre des entreprises du Québec.
Please refer to the section Learn about a merchant's [Fr] on the site of l’Office de la protection du consommateur (OPC) to determine whether the selected contractor has been the subject of consumer complaints. It presents the number, nature and details about their regulation.
You can also look at the section Decisions of the RBQ. These decisions deal with the professional qualifications of the building contractors and owner-builders. They are mainly decisions concerning officers or executives of companies having been involved in bankrupt enterprises or having ceased to operate as contractors.
You can also call at any time the Direction des relations avec la clientèle at 1-800-361-0761 to see if the selected contractor is not the subject of complaints.
If your contractor holds a licence in subcategory 1.3 “Contractor—all buildings”, it is important to check that the contractor is able to carry out all the work included in the subcategory, or only some of the work. Obtain more information about the general contractor subclasses.
