Acquisition of the Mitan archipelago

In October 2004, we announced that the Mitan archipelago had been acquired with the financial contribution of the City of Laval and the Ministry of the Environment of Quebec. We then initiated recognition processes to ensure the archipelago would be considered a protected area.
