New Attestation de Revenu Québec Requirements for Employment Agencies
Improved compliance and less red tape
New requirements for the Attestation de Revenu Québec and the licence issued by the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) apply for employment agencies as of September 1, 2021.
Agencies will now need a valid Attestation not only to obtain or renew a CNESST licence, but also to maintain their licence in effect. However, they will no longer have to give a copy of their Attestation to their clients. Meanwhile, their clients will still have to confirm with the CNESST that the agencies they do business with have a valid licence, but they will no longer have any Attestation requirements of their own.
These changes will help improve compliance in the sector. They will also cut down on red tape and thereby reduce costs for agencies and clients that meet their obligations. This administrative streamlining will encourage all agencies, including those that are currently non-compliant, to meet their obligations, which is essential to maintaining healthy competition in the sector.
Even more streamlined
The Attestation is valid until the end of the month in which it was issued and for the following three months.
