The temporary relocation of the local ministère des Forêts de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) in Mansfield-et-Pontefract has some residents and workers in the area worried. In a letter to the mayors of Mansfield and Fort-Coulonge Gilles Dionne and Gaston Allard, employees and ex-employees of the MFFP say that a relocation of the premises could have consequences for the future of the region.

The offices of the MFFP must, according to the information in the letter, move to the municipality of Bryson in August 2020, in the former premises of the CLSC, temporarily (2 to 5 years). "But where will the relocation be following this deadline and will there be one?’’ raises the letter.

“Moving the office east will help the Gatineau workforce, moreover, some employees will leave to settle in Gatineau. The government should keep jobs in our villages.”

At the most recent meeting of mayors of the MRC Pontiac, it was resolved to ask Pierre Dufour, the Quebec Minister of Forests, Wildlife and Parks, to consider relocating the local office to the municipality of Mansfield or Fort-Coulonge, if applicable.
