Quebec announced on Friday its intention to create the Dunes National Park -de-Tadoussac, in Haute-Côte-Nord.

By press release, Minister Benoit Charette indicated that a sector of 6.5 km2 was targeted on the edge of the St. Lawrence estuary.

For 40 years, the government of Quebec has aimed to offer the Tadoussac dunes the status of national park to better protect this sector of #x27;incredible beauty and biodiversity, highlight it and promote its sustainable access.

A quote from Benoit Charette, Minister of the Environment, Wildlife and Parks

This national park will have several missions. It must first of all serve as a place of conservation. National parks highlight the splendors of our regions. […] The Tadoussac dunes will offer Quebecers an exceptional showcase of the majestic Saint-Laurent, underlines Yves Montigny, MP for René-Lévesque, in the same press release.

The Tadoussac Dunes site is recognized for its biodiversity, but also for its strong archaeological and recreational tourism potential which could be highlighted in the future national park, adds the Ministry of the Environment. This asset should contribute to the socio-economic vitality of the North Shore.

The marine park of Saguenay-Saint-Laurent is an important summer habitat for several species of marine mammals, including the humpback whale.

The future Dunes-de-Tadoussac national park will also provide a window onto the Saguenay-Saint-Laurent marine park.

< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">To launch this project, the Ministry of the Environment worked extensively with the Municipality of Tadoussac, its residents and the local Essipit community. It is the result of significant consultation work carried out with the local and regional community over the last three years, explains Minister Benoit Charette.

To come to fruition, the project must be the subject of public consultations by the Office of Public Audiences on the Environment (BAPE). The warrant for hearing must be filed no later than August 16.
