Under the Act and Regulation respecting Tourist accommodation establishments, operators of Mont Tremblant accommodations and other such establishments in Quebec are required to hold a CITQ classification certificate allowing them to operate their establishment. The classification certificate is valid for 24 months and takes the form of a sign that must be posted in plain sight.
There are two main objectives to the CITQ classification program:
1. to protect travelers
2. to improve the quality of Tremblant vacation rental accommodations and other such establishments offered in Quebec.
The CITQ classification program has many benefits including:
- Travelers are assured that they are getting a complete and reliable description of every Mont Tremblant accommodation in Quebec;
- Owners of establishment accommodations can reference detailed documentation in order to help them develop products adapted to their target markets, while ensuring healthy competition;
- Developers and policy makers have specific data on the supply of accommodations that they can use to develop promotional strategies tailored to the specific market.
