Licence holders' repertory

Can’t find the contractor?

It means he does not have a licence or has an invalid one. 

The Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) keeps the Licence holders' repertory which can be used:

  • to check, before and after the work, if a building contractor holds a contractor’s licence, since it can become invalid at any moment
  • to find a contractor to carry out construction or renovation work.

 

Can’t find a contractor in the repertory?

There are two reasons why you cannot find a contractor in the repertory :

  • he does not hold a licence or has an invalid licence, because it has been suspended, for example
  • you made an error in the search keys, such as a wrongly written name.

If your searches are unsuccessful, contact the Direction des relations avec la clientèle (DRC).

How many years of experience does the contractor have?

To know how many years of experience a contractor has, consult the Registraire des entreprises du QuébecThis link open an external website of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec in a new window., since the RBQ does not have this information. 

Is there complaints on the contractor’s file?

Your contractor holds subclass 1.3?

If your contractor holds a licence in subcategory 1.3 – Contractor in 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.
