If you are a contractor or a client, here is the information that you need to know:
YOU ARE A CLIENT
Check with your provincial authorities to find out about current recommendations for renovation projects. In some parts of Canada, contractors are allowed to present quotes and carry out renovation projects starting in the upcoming days and weeks.
For example, in Quebec, all renovation projects will be allowed to start on May 11th 2020. In Ontario and Alberta, there is no set date for construction and home renovations to be relaunched. As such, strict guidelines are still in order. Please consult your provincial government website for specific information.
In the meantime, RenoQuotes is here to put you in touch with our network of contractors. We encourage clients and contractors to follow the rules and guidelines enforced by provincial authorities.
