IRP Registration

Registering a Vehicle for Operation Outside of Québec

Implementation of the International Registration Plan (IRP) in Québec is the result of an agreement by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) with Canadian and US jurisdictions. Under IRP, carriers only pay registration fees once, to the base jurisdiction, which in turn ensures travel for duly licensed vehicles in other jurisdictions. IRP functions on the basis of reciprocity, which means it is a reciprocal agreement allowing Quebec vehicles to travel in other Canadian provinces or US states. The agreement is administered by IRP Inc.

The SAAQ is responsible for processing requests for IRP registration on the part of carriers with an established place of business in Québec.
