It is now possible to submit a request for certification for the new category of principal residence establishment. However, no new certifications for principal residence establishment classifications may be issued until the new Regulation Respecting Tourist Accommodation Establishments comes into effect on May 1st, 2020.

I declare that, over the past three years, I have not been found guilty of a violation of a provision of the Act Respecting Tourist Accommodation Establishments or its regulations, the Building Act (chapter B-1.1) with respect to barrier-free design, the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2), the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1) or the Act Respecting the Conservation and Development of Wildlife (chapter C-61.1), or have not been subject to an order of non-conformance rendered in accordance with one of these Acts.

I understand that, pursuant to article 37, paragraph 1 of the Act Respecting Tourist Accommodation Establishments, “Anyone who makes a false declaration in a document prescribed by this Act and the regulations, is guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine of $2,500 to $25,000 in the case of a natural person and $5,000 to $50,000 in other cases”.
