Emergency order to protect boreal caribou habitat in Quebec

| Environment and Climate Change Canada | backgrounders

At the recommendation of the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Government of Canada is taking steps to make an emergency order to address the imminent threats faced by the three most at-risk boreal caribou populations in Quebec, namely those in Val-d’Or, Charlevoix, and Pipmuacan. The populations in Val-d’Or and Charlevoix, with 9 and 30 individuals, respectively, live in enclosures year-round. The population in Val-d’Or has already crossed the threshold of quasi-extinction, and the one in Charlevoix is very close to reaching it. With less than 300 individuals, the Pipmuacan population could cross the threshold in around 10 years.
