Through the beauty of its landscapes and the richness of the natural and cultural heritage they contain, the national parks constitute an exceptional showcase for Québec and its regions. A place for wonder, self-restoration and discovery, these lands invite citizens to get close to nature. Through mobilization of the entire society, Québec’s national parks help in the growth of communities and protect in perpetuity the collective natural legacy of which Québec men and women are so proud.
Québec’s national parks ensure the permanent conservation of areas that represent Québec’s natural regions and natural sites of exceptional character, in particular due to their biological diversity. They provide benefits to current and future generations, through education and extensive recreation.
Today, Québec’s national parks network includes 27 areas and the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park which is jointly managed by the Canadian and Québec governments.
