Support the Iles-de-Boucherville National Park expansion project 

Let yourself be invaded by the "Yes in my backyard!" Syndrome

Located between Montreal and Boucherville, the Tailhandier Flats Archipelago is a federal territory of approximately 2 km2, bordering the north of the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park. The Quebec Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS Quebec) and the Friends of the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park are asking the Canadian Federal Government to cede this natural environment to the Government of Quebec to be annexed to the national park.

The annexation of the Tailhandier Flats to the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park is a real opportunity for the governments of Canada and Quebec to demonstrate by a concrete gesture their willingness to collaborate and seize all the opportunities available to reach the international target of 17% protected areas by 2020. It would also be a way for the municipalities of the Greater Montreal area to increase the nature connection offer to citizens for their leisure, health and well-being.
