Regulation in the Construction Industry

Many regulations govern operations in the construction industry, which is constantly changing. To adapt to the various requirements in the labour market, government obligations and decisions, sector, or regional expectations, and support the implementation of programs, the CCQ is authorized by sections 84 or 123.1 of Act R-20 to amend an industry regulation.

The same as all government ministries and agencies, the CCQ also must produce a regulatory impact analysis under the Politique gouvernementale sur l'allègement réglementaire et administratif (decree 32-2014) as soon as proposed legislation or regulations affect or may have repercussions on businesses.

Regulatory impact analyses verify whether passage of legislation or regulations minimize potential costs and repercussions for businesses. These analyses also must demonstrate that a problem exists and that non-regulatory or non-legislative solutions have been considered, if the situation allows.

Following is a list of pending and implemented regulatory changes.
