The inspectors of the Commission de la construction du Québec, where the area of jurisdiction of the Act respecting labour relations, vocational training and manpower management in the construction industry (chapter R-20) is the same as that of this Act, have the power to verify if a building contractor or owner-builder holds a licence.
Every person designated under this section shall have the same powers and duties as inspectors appointed under this Act.
