It can be difficult to find your way through the many measures in place to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. This is why we have prepared a summary of what will be closed, open, prohibited and authorized in outfitters.
With the hunting season at its best and the extended fishing period, most outfitters in Quebec are still open.
Sanitary measures designed to protect visitors and workers are well implemented and they are ready to welcome you in a safe environment.
However, new health guidelines are in place in the “red” and “orange” regions.
Thus, Quebec outfitters follow public health measures in their establishments according to the alert level in effect in their own region, and not according to the visitor’s origin.
Therefore, it is the visitor’s responsibility to ensure that his or her stay complies with the public health recommendations in effect in the region from which he or she comes.
It is also recommended that you do your shopping and purchase your licences in your home region and avoid all stops on your way to the outfitter.
