The Restigouche Wilderness Waterway Public Meeting

The Restigouche Wilderness Waterway is an initiative for a designated area to protect and conserve the wilderness character of the watercourse and its ecosystems while accommodating compatible recreational activities and industries throughout the year.

A meeting will take place Tuesday February 11, 2014 at 7 P.M. at the Listuguj Community Development Center (Bingo Hall)

Objectives of the meetings:

  • To present the status of the project
  • To discuss and prioritize potential services, protection, and required infrastructure
  • To discuss and evaluate potential funding source, collaboration and partnership


The benefits of this initiative are:

  • An increase in the quality of the Restigouche River experience as a wilderness waterway, leading to local job growth and up selling of services;
  • A river stewardship ethic that protects the ecology of the resource;
  • A governance structure that allows for timely and economical intervention to manage issues;
  • A self-sufficient operational structure;


Your opinions, suggestions and solutions are important for the future of your river.

The promoter of this initiative is the Restigouche River Watershed Management Council (RRWMC). The RRMWC is a non-profit organization with members from the local community including the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government and Eel River Bar First Nations.
