The role of the Guarantee Plan for New Residential Buildings

Updated: Apr 5, 2022

Domania is proud to have several business partners from the real estate industry to its credit. Among these key players is the Kana Constructions group. Founded by Mr. Nabil Glenza in 2006, its first project called Domania in Brossard reflects the quality and success of the company to date.

Amongst other things, Domania delegates its concrete operations, namely the development and construction process to the Kana group. This is when the role of the Guarantee Plan for New Residential Buildings (GCR) comes into play, a neutral and independent non-profit organization that administers the guarantee plan for all new residential buildings in the province of Quebec.

So that your house is well built

It’s in 2014 that the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) formally authorizes the GCR to administer the guarantee plan. The GCR is mandatory and guides both entrepreneurs and buyers in the real estate development process; from construction to sale. The main goal of this organization is its contribution to improving the quality of residential construction and the satisfaction of the beneficiaries. In summary, the GCR ensures compliance with standards with a universal warranty plan as well as the smooth running of work by conducting sound risk management and reducing the number of complaints.

To buy with peace of mind

The Kana group is proud to be part of the directory of accredited companies.

“Our national certification system allows you to rank amongst the best entrepreneurs in Quebec and access all of our expertise to build new high-quality homes.”


GCR guides entrepreneurs and protects the interests of buyers. It offers three essential tools which are:

  • The accreditation of entrepreneurs, where the assessment is based on their financial health and their ability to build according to the rules;

  • Building Registration;

  • Site inspection and monitoring during work by their inspectors.

Training and workshops

In addition, in order to inform and offer the latest industry news, the GCR goes on tour every year, offering workshops such as the ten most frequent complaints at GCR, indicating precisely the problematic elements, what to avoid from a technical point of view and methods to ensure quality construction for these elements.

A few facts

  • More than 3,300 entrepreneurs accredited as of December 31, 2020

  • Over 45,000 buildings registered

  • Over 8,000 residential units inspected

Domania commits itself to be part of the awards ceremony during the tour in order to highlight the work of entrepreneurs with a Technical Score AA or a Quality Score GCR AA.

Tools for you!

The GCR site contains several tools for information, such as the purchaser's kit and the maintenance guide. You can also find them on Facebook and on LinkedIn and follow their activities in a more interactive way.

We’ll be informing you with valuable updates on all stages of our development, activities, and upcoming opportunities.
