We are working to create a network of protected areas across the province to ensure the long-term protection of the boreal forest, the Far North, the St. Lawrence and the ecosystems sheltering our endangered species. We also oversee the proper management of existing protected areas.
Founded in 2001, the Quebec branch of CPAWS is able to rely on a Canadian network active since 1963, currently made up of a national office in Ottawa and 13 chapters from coast to coast.
CPAWS Quebec has contributed to the creation of several thousand square kilometres of protected areas in Quebec, such as Tursujuq National Park.
Today, CPAWS Quebec has more than 35,000 supporters, 200 volunteers and 11 employees dedicated to our mission of nature conservation
