Under the responsibility of the ministre du Travail, de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité social, the Régie du bâtiment – (RBQ) Quebec is present in the entire territory of the province of Quebec. The RBQ has the status of a “body other than budget-funded body”. Thus, it finances its expenses directly from the sources of independent revenue. However, the RBQ remains subject to the Civil Service Act and liable to the government budgetary management framework. The RBQ’s head office is in Montreal.  The following documents pertain to this jurisdiction.

Recently RBQ created exemptions for the registration of categories of fittings which are detailed here RBQ ACT.

It is not recommended to obtain a fitting registration through CSA as long delays can result and significant additional fees will result.
