Who are we ?
The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Quebec chapter (SNAP Québec) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of nature. We are working to create a network of protected areas across Quebec to ensure the long-term protection of the ecosystems sheltering our endangered species. Founded in 2001, the Quebec branch of CPAWS is able to rely on a Canadian network active since 1963.
The CPAWS Ottawa Valley chapter (CPAWS-OV) works to protect public lands in the Ottawa River Watershed of Quebec and Ontario – an area twice the size of the province of New Brunswick. Since the Chapter’s creation in 1969, it has helped to protect over 7500 square kilometers of wilderness in eastern Ontario and western Quebec - that is almost three times the size of the amalgamated city of Ottawa!
