Your Shore :  A natural wonder that must be preserved

For many waterfront property owners, the quiet spot by the lake or river is a little bit of paradise where we can relax, play, and enjoy being closer to nature.  But it is a special place for another reason too.  It is one of the richest and most complex environments that we frequent.  This exceptional environment is where water and land meet to form the shore.  Besides providing shelter for diverse wildlife and plants, the shore is crucial to the health of lakes and rivers because it acts as their lungs and a protective barrier.  To find out more, please click here.

The "Policy pertaining to the “protection of banks, the littoral and the easily flooded plains published by the Government of Quebec, was adopted in 1987 and revised in 2005, for the purpose of protecting the integrity of lacustrine environments.
