Policy for Québec National Parks

Parcs nationaux du QuébecSince the creation of Québec’s first parks, Laurentides and la Montagne Tremblante, in 1895, the Québec national park network has never stopped developing and evolving.

In a constantly changing environment, maintaining this collective heritage for current and future generations is a constant challenge.

In continuity with the national parks’ mission of conservation and access, the Policy for Québec National Parks provides details on the governance of the network of Québec national parks. It defines the orientations that guide actions in national parks, emphasizing the essential collaborative links between stakeholders.

With this new Policy for Québec National Parks, the Gouvernement du Québec reiterates the great value of these natural areas for society. These protected lands deliver many ecological services to communities, provide outdoor destinations for families and opportunities for non-natives and Aboriginal peoples to come together. They are also development levers for the regions. All these benefits are facets of a network constructed for citizens. A network that rouses the pride of Quebecers.
