Parc national Tursujuq was inaugurated during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the park visitor pavilion in Umiujaq, Nunavik, at the end of October.
Tursujuq is Nunavik’s fourth national park. Covering 26,107 km2, it is also Quebec’s largest. It is defined by Hudson cuestas, two immense lakes and the Nastapoka River. The protected area is also home to unique species of salmon, freshwater seal and beluga. Traces of human activity dating back 3,000 years have been discovered in the park, as well as Inuit and Cree trading posts.
