Individuals working in the home renovation field in Quebec need to be aware that this business is strictly regulated. To operate legally, you will need to complete a few steps which will allow you to comply with the current legislation. 

At first, you will have to register your company with the Registraire des Entreprises du Québec (REQ). Secondly, you will have to get your contractor's license. This license is delivered by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) for every company working in the construction field.

Also, depending on what field you're in, you'll have to contact a few organizations to get registered. For example, if you're a plumber or if you install heaters, you'll have to contact the Corporation des maîtres mécaniciens en tuyauterie du Québec (CMMTQ). If your company is specialized in electricity, you will have to contact the Corporation des maîtres électriciens du Québec (CMEQ).

Thirdly, you will need to register your company to the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ). Whether employees are present in the company or not doesn’t change the fact that this registration is mandatory. However, for subcontracting jobs, you won’t need to register your business.

Should you incorporate your renovation company? Is there any financial help?

Incorporating your company will create a legal entity that is separated from shareholders. Many benefits come with incorporating your company. 

For example, you will benefit from several tax deductions and your status could also help limit your liability to your creditors. Your company can be registered either with the federal government or the provincial government.

You could incorporate your company without the help of a lawyer. But you should be careful because what happens often is that contractors do not fulfil some parts of the form, which are sometimes complex and find themselves with an incorporation process that does not respect the law.

The process is fairly easy to understand but the forms are long and if you forget to fill out certain parts, Also, you should know that every year, the government of Quebec grants several million dollars to companies in Quebec.
