Territorial reserves for protected area purposes
(Réserves de territoires aux fins d’aire protégée)

The status of “Territorial reserves for protected area purposes” allows for the recognition of a territory until legally protected status is attributed to it. The management procedures respecting this type of status comply with international standards governing protected areas. Territorial reserves for protected area purposes can thus be recorded in the Québec Register of Protected Areas.

The Minister of the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change, the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, and the Minister of Forests, Wildlife and Parks jointly ensure the protection of territorial reserves for protected area purposes in terrestrial and freshwater environments. They jointly ensure the requisite administrative and legal provisions to prohibit throughout the territories all natural resource exploitation activities (mining, energy, and forests) until legally protected status is attributed to them. The priority objective of the designations is nature conservation.
