You, the operator, apply to the CITQ for an attestation certificate.

The CITQ notifies the municipality concerned by the application.

The municipality has 45 days to oppose the application.

You complete and return the forms that the CITQ has sent you, along with payment of the applicable fees.

N.B. : At this step, you must send the CITQ proof that you have civil liability insurance coverage of at least $2 million, as required by regulation.

Important - The rights conferred by a classification certificate cannot be transferred to another person. If the new purchaser of an establishment wishes to continue tourist rentals, he/she must apply for a new certificate.

The CITQ will issue a provisional classification certificate, which must be affixed in public view.
