A person who receives financial support under a last resort financial assistance program is exempt from paying costs. For more information on that topic, please get in touch with one of our employees.

Reimbursement of fees: every applicant must pay the fees charged to submit proceedings to the Régie du logement, unless the applicant is a recipient under a last resort financial assistance program and provides proof of that.

The Régie reimburses the fees in the following cases:

  • an application for correction of a decision;
  • an application for revocation of a Régie decision solely because the decision omitted to adjudicate upon part of the application or decided beyond the application (the second paragraph of section 89 of the Act respecting the Régie du logement (R.S.Q., c. R-8.1);
  • upon the board's recommendation.
