Under the Agreement to conduct a study on the establishment of a marine protected area around the Îles de la Madeleine, the governments of Canada and Québec plan to involve local populations and relevant aboriginal communities.

Public Information

Various means will be implemented during the next two years to inform and consult with Îles-de-la-Madeleine residents.

First, in collaboration with the Îles de la Madeleine Agglomeration Council, a consultative committee representing the sectors that are most affected will be formed so that the citizens involved can express their opinions and signal issues of concern.

Various communications tools will be developed to report on progress and keep the public and interested parties informed. In addition, joint information sessions may be arranged with participating organizations to publicize the study’s results and conclusions.

Individuals may also request additional information through the consultative committee or directly by contacting representatives of Parks Canada and the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec.

Aboriginal communities

Aboriginal groups with interests in the study Area will be consulted.
