Other than the RMBMU, there are 3 BRs in Quebec:
CHARLEVOIX BIOSPHERE RESERVE
Situated in the Charlevoix region north-east of Quebec City, it is bordered by the salt water and tides of the St. Lawrence River. It is host to exceptionally rich vegetation, ranging from maples at low altitudes to the tundra of the Parc National des Grand-Jardin which is barely 40 km north of the St-Laurence. The regional economy is mainly based on tourism, forestry and the full expansion of a small producer’s network that brings regional products to market.
LAC-SAINT-PIERRE BIOSPHERE RESERVE
Situated along the St. Lawrence River, between Montreal and Quebec City, Lac-Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve is travelled by a significant waterway. This waterway is an important stepping point for migratory birds while being in an industrialized region. Sustainable tourism, hunting and fishing are major industries in the region.
MONT SAINT-HILAIRE BIOSPHERE RESERVE
Situated 30km from Montreal, Mont Saint-Hilaire Biosphere Reserve was Canada’s first BR Biosphere Reserve (1978). With its beautiful trees and dancing forests, its peaks and mysterious lake, Mont Saint-Hilaire perfectly illustrates how a community can first prioritize the conservation of biodiversity while actively contributing to the local economy.
