Government of Canada Invests in St. Lawrence Estuary Restoration

Rémi Massé, Member of Parliament for Avignon – La Mitis – Matane –Matapédia, announced yesterday that the ZIP Committee of Sud-de-l’Estuaire will receive nearly $2.4 million over five years for a project to help restore the coastal habitats of five sectors on the south shore of the St. Lawrence Estuary.

The goal of the project is to restore coastal habitats in the sectors of Saint-Ulric, Isle-aux-Grues, Rivière-Ouelle, Notre-Dame-du-Portage, and Trois-Pistoles.

This investment from the Government of Canada to restore coastal habitats on the south shore of the St. Lawrence Estuary is a strategic initiative that will represent a significant advantage for Quebec,” said Massé.

“In addition to fostering regional synergy between the ZIP Committee of Sud-de-l’Estuaire and its partners, the project will help reinforce the capacity of several organizations to restore key habitats and to share knowledge about the various actions that will be taken.

In May 2017, the Government of Canada announced the $75 million Coastal Restoration Fund to help rehabilitate some of our most important coastlines and protect marine life and ecosystems.

The Coastal Restoration Fund supports projects that contribute to coastal restoration on all of Canada’s coasts with preference given to projects that are multiyear and involve a broad number of partners, including Indigenous groups.
