Reopening Plan

31 May 2021

Premier Legault announced his reopening plan with a series of relaxations for all regions of Quebec.

With the fishing season in progress, we were all looking forward to finding out what would be allowed in outfitters in the coming weeks.

Since May 28, the curfew has been lifted throughout Quebec. Outdoor gatherings are permitted in addition to travels between regions. In the red and orange zones, outfitters are able to welcome members of a same family unit with a single person accompanied by their children or not. In the yellow zone, it still is possible to accommodate residents of two different addresses.

As of June 14, it will be possible for outfitters in all regions to accommodate groups with two different addresses.

Then, on June 28, it will be possible to add one address to the group to return to a model relatively similar to last summer with groups of 10 people from 3 different households.

We understand that these measures can be challenging when planning your spring fishing trip. If your stay is coming up soon and the sanitary measures in effect prevent you from going to an outfitter, we invite you to contact him quickly to discuss the different options available.

Finally, for more information on the reopening plan and future relaxations, we invite you to visit quebec.ca/deconfinement.

You can also visit Visitor’s Guide in COVID Context for additional details.

Furthermore, if you must travel from a region to another, we strongly recommend that you do your shopping, fill up your vehicle, purchase your licences in your region of origin and avoid all stops on the way to or from the outfitter.
