Services Offered to Government Departments and Bodies

The Registraire des entreprises offers services to government departments and bodies that request them.

Certain services require a user code and password, which are sent to the person in charge designated by the government department or body in question (a body is defined by the Financial Administration Act [CQLR., c. A-6.001, s. 2]). Others require a prior agreement with the Registraire.

Contact our client services for information about registering for services that require a user name and password. Contact information is provided on the Contact Us page.

Want to learn more about the information in the register and how to use it? Sign up for Travailler avec le registre des entreprises du Québec, a training seminar (in French only) for employees of government departments and bodies who use the information in the register in their work (registering new suppliers, issuing permits, monitoring, conducting investigations, etc.).

Request a compilation of information

Note
Compilations of information that government departments and bodies request may contain personal information such as the name and address of the natural person if they comply with the criteria stipulated in the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information.

Government departments and bodies and educational institutions can obtain, free of charge, compilations of information for research purposes.

Mass data transfer (improved)

Important
To use this service, government departments, bodies and enterprises must have a signed a prior agreement with the Registraire des entreprises.

By using this service, government departments, bodies and enterprises can obtain files containing information from the register and their updates. The files can be sent daily or monthly.

Before using this service, the government department, body or enterprise must sign an agreement with the Registraire setting out the terms for the release of the information.

Note that the Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity can conclude such an agreement with a government department, body or enterprise in order to have the Registraire provide all or part of the information in the register and the related updates. Such agreements may or may not provide for the consultation of files containing registrants' personal information (individuals’ names and addresses). This access to protected confidential information is allowed as a result of the powers conferred upon certain departments and bodies, such as powers of inquiry or investigation.

Improvements to the service include:

  • the option to change the file format;
  • the ability to send more detailed information.

To access the new version, users that had already signed an agreement for the previous version may have to perform some updates to their systems.

For more information, refer to document IN-536, Guide d'intégration technique – Diffusion massive (in French only), or write to Diffusion-Massive@req.gouv.qc.ca.
