Your Safety; your responsibility
Outdoor activities can involve certain risks, so always be sure to have the skills and abilities required for the activity you choose. Your abilities must not be impaired by alcohol, a drug or medication. It is very important to find out about the risks involved in the activity, to know and respect your own limits and to use appropriate equipment. We suggest that you visit our section Security.
Cleanliness and Damage to Equipment
Customers must always leave any place they stay and any equipment they use clean and in good condition.
Customers will be billed for any damage to Sépaq equipment. Cabins, rustic shelters and yurts left untidy will be cleaned at the customer's expense.
Respect for the Environment
Conserving the natural environment is everyone’s business. For this reason, the following is prohibited:
- Killing, capturing, wounding, molesting, harassing, feeding or taming an animal. Please note that animal harvesting is authorized in hunting packages in the wildlife reserves and fishing packages in the wildlife reserves and national parks.
- Disposing of garbage in places other than designated containers and burning garbage in campfires.
- Cutting down, damaging, taking away or planting a tree, bush, any other kind of plant, or any part of them.
- Collecting dead wood.
- Leaving dishes or food lying around. Out of respect of the wildlife, it is important to keep food in the car or in designated installations.
Safety for Nautical Activities, Boats and Motors
Federal regulation provides that no person shall operate a vessel unless it carries in good working order, the following:
- Personal flotation device in sufficient quantity.
- A buoyant heaving line of no less than 15 m in length.
- A watertight flashlight or 3 approved flares if the craft is fitted with a motor.
- A sound-signaling device or a sound-signaling appliance.
- One bailer or one manual water pump.
- A manual propelling device.
Manual propelling devices are supplied by Sépaq. You must provide the other equipment required for each boat used (on sale or rent in most parks and wildlife reserves).
Federal regulation provides that no person shall operate a craft fitted with a motor unless carrying onboard a proof of having successfully completed a boating safety course in Canada prior to April 1st, 1999 or a pleasure craft operator card issued following the successful completion of a Transport Canada accredited test.
If you don't have a such proof of competency and you want to rent a craft fitted with a motor, you will need to complete a rental boat safety checklist.
For more information, please consult the Office of Boating Safety Web site or call the office at 1 800 267-6687.
Maximum weight limits are shown on all boats that Sépaq make available to the public, and must be respected.
Closures or prohibition of activities
In the interest of safety and prevention, Sépaq reserves the right to prohibit the practice of activities normally offered or traffic in an establishment or sector thereof, when it deems it necessary or if there are risks to the safety of persons. Only the cancelled activity can be refunded or compensated.
Access to information law
By virtue of the Access to Information Law, Sépaq personnel may not transmit any information about clientele (e.g. name, site number, etc.). However, a bulletin board located at the reception post will be available to customers who wish to leave messages.
Anyone who breaks these rules may be expelled immediately without a refund.
