4 – Video Rental

The fourth section of c-store regulations concerns video rental, a service category that is currently in sharp decline but still exists in remote regions. For having the privilege of renting movies, a retailer must obtain a license from the Régie du cinéma du Québec and pay an annual fee, all under the guidance of the Ministère de la Culture et des communications.
