Chapter II – Protection of particular places and territories
Division II – Special provisions applicable to Native portage trials, Native campgrounds and Native gathering or sojourn areas
Where a Native campground or group of campgrounds not referred to in the second paragraph of section 20 is installed on the territory of a beaver reserve, no forest development activity may be carried out over an area of 4,000 m2, including the area of the campground or group of campgrounds.
This section applies to a maximum of 2 campgrounds or 2 groups of campgrounds per 100 km2 of trapping ground.
- To preserve the integrity of a site of particular interest to a Native community
Section 20 grants protection to only one campground per 100 km2 of trapping ground situated in a beaver reserve. If there is more than one Native campground per 100 km² of trapping ground, the trapper may choose which one is protected. The other Native campgrounds or groups of campgrounds are nevertheless protected under this section, since forest development activities cannot be carried out over an area of 4,000 m2, including the area of the campground or group of campgrounds. This protection applies to no more than two campgrounds or two groups of campgrounds per 100 km² of trapping ground situated in a beaver reserve.
It is important to note that the definition of the term “forest development activity” in section 2 of the Regulation means that the standards set out in sections 3, 5, 19 to 22, 47, 50, 52, 54, 55, 57 and 59 do not apply to the repair, maintenance or closure of forest roads or to the control of fires, insect epidemics and cryptogamic diseases.
