In Quebec, the Act and Regulation respecting tourist accommodation establishments, stipulate that anyone wishing to offer accommodation for tourists must have a classification certificate.

However, the guide to the interpretation of the Act and Regulation state that a classification certificate is optional for natural persons offering to rent all or part of their principal residence. Tourist accommodation must also be allowed by the municipality.

The certificate is valid for 24 months, and takes the form of a sign that must be posted in plain sight.
