Pew Congratulates Appointees to Key Development Group in Northern Quebec

MONTREAL, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - On Sept. 19, 2013, the government of Quebec announced that it was reconvening the Partners Table, which brings together leaders from aboriginal communities, environmental organizations, industry, and regional representatives to find innovative ways to balance economic development and environmental protection in Northern Quebec. This important process led to adoption in 2010 of the 50/50 sustainable development policy in a region of Quebec that is twice the size of Texas.

The new Parti Quebecois government has announced that it will resume the Partners Table process Oct. 11, 2013. Nature Quebec and the Conseil Régional de l'Environnement de la Côte-Nord have been appointed to represent concerns related to protected areas, sustainable development, and the environment.

Pew joins the Canadian Boreal Initiative and the Society for Nature and Parks in congratulating Christian Simard of Nature Quebec and Sébastien Caron of the Conseil Régional de l'Environnement de la Côte-Nord for their appointment to the Partners Table.
