For construction contractors who must comply with the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec (RBQ), the purpose of a surety bond is to indemnify any client who has suffered prejudice as a result of the non-performance or completion of construction work and is the direct result of deposits paid and non-completion of work. 

Requirements

  • The amount of the bond required is $20,000 for specialized contractors and $40,000 for general contractors.

Advantages

  • Obtain both an RBQ bond offer and an insurance offer at the same time, now possible with APRIL
  • An incentive for consumers to do business with a licensed contractor and the opportunity to benefit from increased protection by having their work performed by a licensee who guarantees the meeting of contractual obligations
  • The RBQ bond is mandatory for the majority of construction contractors
  • RBQ bonds available for a period of one or two years

What the RBQ Bond Does Not Cover

  • Claims of persons who participated in the construction work
  • Compensation for damages resulting from a delay in the execution of construction work
  • Compensation for pain and suffering and punitive damages
  • Bodily injury or property damage to third parties as a result of the insured’s activities (generally covered by the public liability insurance policy or the additional coverage of APRIL’s offer)
