Biodiversity Conservation Plan

In 2017, we launched our Biodiversity Conservation Plan following on the Biodiversity Conservation Management Plan in 2016. It is the result of a vast consultation of 15 communities of interest, including the Association forestière de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue (AFAT), the Abitibiwinni (Pikogan) First Nation Council, the Town of Malartic and ÉcoMalartic.

The Biodiversity Conservation Plan has numerous objectives. In addition to consolidating existing actions, we intend to structure our long-term approach by defining key directions and implementing new actions.
