An obligation for camping establishments in Quebec


Since 2003, every person operating a campground establishment in Quebec is required to hold a classification certificate for the establishment. Classification is mandatory under the Tourist Accommodation Establishments Act. Classification has also become an eligibility criterion for many services available to campgrounds: publication in the Quebec Campground Guide, listing on tourist signs and in most guides published by regional tourist associations, etc.

Are you obligated?

Are you offering campsites or ready-to-camp units for rent? You may be subject to the Act! For more information, see the interpretation guide put out by the Ministère du Tourisme:

Loi et règlement sur les établissements d'hébergement touristique - Interpretation Guide
