 *The Ministère has directed the Bureau d'audiences publiques sur l'environnement (BAPE) to hold a public consultation as part of the process of assigning permanent biodiversity status to twelve territories, and aquatic reserve status to one territory, all located in the Mauricie region. The primary objective of the consultation document is to provide the information needed by all organizations and private citizens that so wish, to comment on the permanent aquatic reserve status assignment process.
