Obtaining a building permit

You may have to obtain with your municipality a building permit appropriate to the nature of the work you wish to undertake. Check first with your municipality.

Display your permit

During the time a construction or conversion project is being carried out, the permit delivered to this effect by your municipality must be displayed in full view at the work site.

The Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) does not issue building permits. However, the municipalities must inform the RBQ of all the building permits which have been granted. This information is also communicated to the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ)This link open an external website of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec in a new window. and to Revenu QuébecThis link open an external website of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec in a new window..

This information enables the government to know where the construction sites are located, to verify the licences and permits and to contribute to tax fairness and to consumer protection.
