Weh-Sees Indohoun Special Zone - A self-registration system is being established for the 2017 season
Chibougamau, May 30, 2017
The Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) wishes to inform
the public that it will establish a self-registration system for the 2017
fishing season in order to comply with its obligation to make available to
potential users of wildlife resources the necessary means to obtain access
rights to the Weh-Sees Indohoun Special Zone.
In addition to a Québec government fishing licence, anyone who is not a
beneficiary of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (JBNQA) wishing to
engage in sportfishing must obtain a daily access right to the Weh-Sees Indohoun
Special Zone (WSI). The access right is free of charge and the form is available
At the conclusion of their fishing trips, all anglers must declare their catches
(kept, released or consumed on-site) by sending their daily catch report and
their access pass to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to comply with this condition constitutes an offence liable to a fine
pursuant to the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife.
As for sport hunting, hunters who are not beneficiaries of the JBNQA are
subject to the legislation and regulations in force in this territory. They
must, therefore, possess a Québec government hunting licence and comply with the
regulations applicable to each sector and species. To consult the regulations,
please visit the MFFP website (https://www.mffp.gouv.qc.ca/faune/chasse/).
Lastly, it should be noted that the specific procedures respecting moose hunting
are applicable in the entire special zone.
