Protected areas in Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Public Consultation

After completing the regional network of protected areas and after reading the briefs submitted and thoroughly analyzing their content, the MDDELCC produced a Public Consultation Report (French, PDF, 3.7 MB).

Next steps

Based on the results of this regional public consultation, and focusing on the territories chosen to become protected areas, the MDDELCC will begin the process toward granting those areas proposed reserve status. This process could take several months.

Briefly, the next steps will consist of:

  • Determining the precise boundaries of the territories chosen to become proposed protected areas;
  • Drafting conservation plans for them;
  • Preparing the documentation required for Cabinet to grant proposed reserve status to those territories;
  • Consulting the government departments and agencies concerned;
  • Consulting the Aboriginal communities concerned;
  • Present these protected areas projects to the Council of Ministers to assign them proposed aquatic reserve or proposed biodiversity reserve status.

The process to attribute permanent protection status to these territories will then begin. This process provides for a public consultation beforehand by the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE).
