Tuesday (July 13) was the second public consultation within the framework of the implementation of the Regional Plans for Wetlands and Water Resources (PRMHH) in the Outaouais, organized by the Regional Council for the Environment and Sustainable Development of the Outaouais (CREDDO). A few residents of the Outaouais MRCs took part.

The PRMHHs constitute a legal obligation under the Act respecting the conservation of wetlands and bodies of water adopted by the National Assembly in 2017. “The PRMHHs aim to harmonize the use of the territory and the conservation of wetlands and bodies of water, in particular in order to improve the resilience of communities to climate change. The law stipulates that each MRC must produce its PRMHH by June 2022 ", mentioned the project manager in sustainable management of natural environments, Madelaine Rouleau.

In the Outaouais, the MRCs of Pontiac, Papineau, Collines-de-l’Outaouais and La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau have chosen to work together in a concerted process to develop their respective PRMHH. This joint initiative is coordinated by CREDDO.

The protection and preservation of our natural resources is a top priority for us in the MRC Pontiac. Our residents and visitors take our wild and natural landscapes very seriously. The regional plan for wetlands and bodies of water is a very important step in the right direction.
- Jane Toller, Warden of the MRC Pontiac
