A mission anchored in Québec law

The Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ) is the organization to which the government has entrusted responsibility for implementation of the Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry (Act R-20) and the associated regulations.

As the organization serving workers and employers in the construction industry and responsible for administering the programs intended for them, the CCQ must:

  • Administer the social benefits plans negotiated as part of the sectorial collective agreements and ensure their development.
  • Administer the funds entrusted to it in such a way as to foster the perpetuation of the programs that they support.
  • Satisfy the needs of the workforce and maintain workers’ skills at a high level.
  • Offer a worker referral service.

As the organization ensuring compliance in the construction industry, the CCQ must:

  • Ensure compliance with the sectorial collective agreements for workers in the construction industry falling under Act R-20 and its regulations.
  • Fight against undeclared work, with a view to fostering fair competition among the industry’s contractors.
  • Contribute to prevention of and the fight against corruption and to application of the tax laws in the construction industry.

The CCQ must thus carry out a mission with two separate components, reflecting the evolution of the Quebec legislative framework regarding the construction industry.
