Northern Québec Region - Non-renewal of licences for the Puunik Camp (Safari Nordik) Ltd. outfitting operation

QUÉBEC CITY, June 1, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) informs the general public that, as of April 1, 2015, it has refused to renew the outfitting licences issued to Puunik Camp (Safari Nordik) Ltd., in accordance with section 177 of the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife. The company is therefore no longer permitted to operate as an outfitter.

Section 177 of the Act stipulates, among other things, that the MFFP may refuse to renew a licence if the licence holder fails to provide the lodging, services or equipment necessary for the carrying on of the activity concerned, and for which a person has paid.

This decision was made after analysis of complaints from customers who had purchased caribou hunting packages from Safari Nordik but had not been able to obtain the promised services for which they had paid.
