To manage and support the development of land, forest and mineral resources in Québec, with a view to achieving sustainable development.

To fulfill its mission, the Department relies first and foremost on the everyday commitment of its staff and their expertise. In the organization’s history, not only has scientific knowledge been an asset, but its acquisition and application have also been a necessity in ensuring coherent and responsible development of its resources.

As is often the case for Government departments, the type and extent of the MRNF’s expertise may not be fully understood by some of the groups that use its services. However, the MRNF looks firmly to the future with an organizational vision based not only on the leading-edge expertise of its staffl, but also on its desire to contribute to the development of Québec’s society.


Responsible economic development is at the heart of our initiatives.
