Plan for the protection and enhancement of Mistassini point and Grande Baie Saint-Nicolas

This plan results from the involvement of members of a committee of stakeholders formed by the Comité ZIP de la Rive Nord de l’estuaire and the municipality of Franquelin, as well as with volunteer members interested in the development of the area. The ideas conveyed in this document were discussed by the members of the committee and were the subject of a consensus following seven consultation meetings. Stakeholders from different levels of government as well as users of the area shared their expertise, experience and ideas. The primary objective of the plan is to enhance and to protect the resources of Pointe Mistassini through the development of new educational and outreach activities that will increase local retention potential and user ethics. Secondly, it aims to adequately and in the long-term, protect the important biological components of the Grand Baie Saint-Nicolas while maintaining sustainable human activities that are traditionally practiced by the users.
