BAIE-COMEAU, QC, Sept. 27, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - The ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) is informing the population that, given the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the issue of a forestry permit for the harvest of firewood for domestic purposes will be mailed for the 2021-2022 season.
Those wishing to obtain a permit can apply through the interactive online map at https://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/boisdechauffage, under the Côte-Nord section, or by contacting the staff in our offices by phone.

The permit is valid until March 31, 2021.
The MFFP reiterates that it is mandatory to hold a permit to harvest firewood in public forests. Like all other forestry operations, this activity is subject to strict rules aimed at ensuring the protection of forest resources.
