The Minister responsible for enforcing the Act respecting tourist accommodation establishments gave the CITQ the mandate of managing the classification program for seven classes of accommodation governed by this Act and its regulation.
Under the terms of this agreement, the CITQ agrees to:
draw up and update classification grids specific to each class for which it is responsible;
visit and classify all establishments for which it is responsible every two years, with the exception of educational institutions, which are classified every four years;
manage all the steps in obtaining and renewing classification certificates.
La CITQ a également un mandat d’inspection de l’hébergement touristique illégal qu’elle exerce sous le nom de Inspection Hébergement Québec (IHQ).
