“I am looking for a handyman, not expensive, for various aesthetic works in my house”

So you are looking for a handy guy, not expensive. And who will you make an invoice so that everything is in the rules of course.

I have news for you. You are in total illegality !

Its bill is worthless and will not save you the very expensive fines or fines of the RBQ.

Licence d'entrepreneur RBQ

Whether it is to replace a door, repair a gypsum hole or repaint your wardrobe you have the obligation to do business with a person with a license from the RBQ and having the subcategories corresponding to the work you want to do achieve. It’s the law !

To become one, your general contractor had to demonstrate his administrative, legal and technical control as for example :

  • Administration – Financial management, management, labor relations regime, legislation and regulation.
  • Health and safety on construction sites – Prevention, compensation, legislation and regulation.
  • Project and site management – Project management, plan reading, project estimation, quality control, legislation and regulations.
  • Building Code – Know the construction standards and then apply them.

It’s up to you to choose between the professional and the amateur. And do not forget that if you take the joby and you get ‘pogner’ it will cost you a lot.

More information available on the website of the Régie du Batîment Québec.
