Quebec does not have a specific Service Dog Law. They rely solely on their Human Rights Law.

Reports are that Quebec does not always treat all Service Dogs Equaly. Their law specifically recognizes Guide Dogs but does not appear to be giving good protections to other Service Dogs.

From the "Act to Secure Handicapped Persons in the Exercise of Their Rights with a View to Achieving Social, School and Workplace Integration":

 dog guide means a dog trained to guide a visually impaired person.

This does not mean that Service Dogs do not have rights in Quebec. It means that the law is old and does not reflect todays needs. The Quebec Human Rights law will protect you, but you may need to file a human rights complaint to correct the shortcomings.
