The Conseil régional de l’environnement et du développement durable de l’Outaouais (CREDDO) and the Société pour la nature et les parcs - Section Vallée de l’Outaouais (SNAP-VO) underlined the financial support of $ 300,000 granted by the Government of Canada for conservation in Outaouais, which will allow the two organizations to carry out planning activities for the creation of a protected area of ​​115,000 hectares in the watersheds of the Noire and Coulonge rivers (MRC Pontiac) in as part of a Quebec government initiative.

MRC Pontiac Warden Jane Toller responded by saying that this is good news that it is important to protect these rivers and their natural ecosystems, as well as our magnificent forests. This funding announcement is great news for the Pontiac, ”said Jane Toller.

For his part, the federal MP for the Pontiac William Amos said he was proud of this announcement from his government and that he was pleased that the impact assessment study made it possible to take into account different points of view in the process of planning, including that of the Algonquin Nation, the forestry and tourism sectors, and our municipalities. - Will Amos, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry (Science)

According to the organizations involved, the project will contribute to the economic diversification of the region by allowing, in particular, the development of the recreational tourism sector in the catchment area of ​​the Noire and Coulonge rivers. It should be noted that the Pontiac is a sector of the Outaouais that is less known to the general public and is particularly favorable for going down river in a setting marked by the beauty of its distinctive landscapes. It is added that it is also ideal for activities like hunting, fishing and vacationing.
