With an area of more than 26,000 km2, Tursujuq is the largest provincial park in Canada to date, as well as the largest protected area in eastern North America.

The creation of this Québec national park in 2013 was a genuine cause for celebration for SNAP Québec; after so many years of calls for action on the part of the Inuit and the Kativik Regional Government (KRG), our collective efforts have come to fruition!

The work was really worth it. In fact, Parc national Tursujuq ensures the protection of a vast wilderness ecosystem, including:

  • The Nastapoka River, a traditional meeting place for Aboriginal families and home to a unique population of fresh-water seals and Atlantic salmon.
  • Lac Guillaume-Delisle, home to seals and beluga whales.
  • Lac à l’Eau Claire, two craters of meteoric origin in the spectacular northern landscape.

Here are some photos of the breathtaking scenery of Tursujuq Park. They will be sure to tempt you to discover the Nunavik parks for yourself!
