Québec national parks are officially recognized protected areas. Parcs Québec ensures that the facilities used to enjoy its parks (discovery and service centres, trails, campgrounds, etc.) take into account environmentally sensitive areas or that they minimize their environmental impact. Therefore, discovery activities, hiking, canoeing and camping are the preferred ways to discover and enjoy the parks. And you can explore these exquisite protected areas year-round!  



The mission of Parcs Québec is to protect and promote the natural environments of Quebec's 43 designated nature areas and sites of outstanding natural beauty. Accordingly, Québec's national parks are managed so as to strike a balance between the conservation of their natural and cultural heritage, and public access for education and recreation purposes.

Did you know that...?

  • In winter 2014, Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata set up a camera in a bald headed eagle's nest to monitor the nesting period live. Visit the park's Facebook page to find out more.
  • Access the entire findings of more than 370 surveys carried out through the ecological integrity tracking program (in French only).
  • In an effort to raise awareness among its neighbouring residents, Parc national de la Yamaska introduced its Green Belt project (in French only) to promote the importance of maintaining the vital interconnection of their natural milieus for the park's rich plant and wildlife.
  • The latest national park, Parc national d’Opémican, has great archaeological potential because it was for a long time the only gateway to the area. In fact, Opimica means "Along the Indian road".
  • Visitors to Parc national de Miguasha can now see the newly discovered specimen, Elpistostege watson (in French only), on display in the exhibition entitled Elpistostege: The Origins of a Quest. This fossil, which is still being studied, will give up many of its secrets in the coming years.
  • The some one hundred caribou that make up the current endangered population of caribou in Gaspésie are the subject of major study. Every 2 hours for 3 years, the geographical location of 35 caribous will be recorded.
  • Frontenac, Lac-Témiscouata, Mont-Orford, Mont-Saint-Bruno, Pointe-Taillon and Yamaska national parks all took part in efforts to contribute better knowledge of dragonflies to the Initiative pour un atlas des libellules du Québec.
