Surety bonds that adapt to your sector of activity

Are you a service business?

A surety bond* is essential if you own a travel agency, health studio, driving school, private educational institution, investigation or security firm, or any business where you deal directly with the public.  Your customers will thus feel secure and the trust you build up with them will be stronger.  And we are at your service to provide the surety bond tailored to your needs.

Are you a building contractor?

As a general contractor or sub-contractor, a surety bond helps you build trust with your customer when planning a construction project. Whatever the size of your project, we can provide the surety bond your business needs:

  • to obtain your license from the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec and/or provide the Régie’s new residential building warranty
  • Performance bonds for completion of work
  • Bid bonds or letters of intent
  • Labour and material payment bonds
  • Maintenance bonds for correcting construction defects

Do you operate an environmental site?

If you operate a quarry, sandpit, landfill, waste disposal or other environmental site, you may need a surety bond to obtain a license guaranteeing that the site will be returned to its original condition once operations have ceased. Stop racking your brains, we’ve got the surety bond you need!
