Sustainable management and responsible development of the Albanel-Mistassini-and-Waconichi Wildlife Reserve (AMW)
- The Wildlife Reserve is dedicated to conservation, development and sustainable harvesting of wildlife and, secondarily, to the practice of recreational activities.
- This territory does not exclude the exploitation of other resources, such as ores and wood.
- A Wildlife Reserve in a territory governed by the JBNQA has the particularity of being able to highlight only sport fishing and recreational activities since any harvest of terrestrial wildlife species is reserved for the beneficiaries of this agreement. In addition, some fish species, such as lake sturgeon, are reserved for the exclusive use of the beneficiaries.
