  • Levels 1 to 8 multi-scale watersheds covering the entire territory of Quebec. These thematic layers were produced using the BDTQ (Quebec Topographical Database on Scale 1:20 000) maps for the southern part of Quebec and CANVEC (Canadian Topographic Database on Scale 1:50 000) for the northern part of the province. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • This theme provides information on the lakes and rivers of Quebec. All descriptors available in this layer come directly from the Lakes and Waterways (LCE) database. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • The cubage tariff is presented in the form of a table. It gives, in essence, the gross merchant volume of a stem based on its diameter at chest height (DHH) and height. These are local rates, that is, the height used in the general tariff equation is predicted by height-DHP relationships developed per sample unit. The cubage rate is produced for the main forest species in southern Quebec and covers almost all of the territory south of the 52nd parallel. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • The Wildlife Habitat Geodatabase (HAFA) contains data for the 11 legal wildlife habitats located on Crown lands that meet the definition of the Wildlife Habitat Regulations (WHR). HAFAs are also found on mixed and private lands for information purposes. __Warning: The digital version of the geo-descriptive data describing wildlife habitats is produced from a legal perspective of habitat location, protection and management. Indeed, only the digital version that was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec.__ The last publication of wildlife habitats is recognized as legal: May 27, 2015. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • Provincial layer representing the administrative subdivision of Quebec territory for the purposes of government forest management. Quebec has 33 field units comprising public territories, including planning units and private territories. Each field unit ensures compliance with the legal and regulatory framework, provides services to citizens and implements departmental programs. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • Data on flood-prone areas include the mapping carried out under the Canada-Quebec Convention mapping program from 1976 to 2001, the Flood Ratings Determination Program from 2001 to 2004 (PDCC), as well as the mapping carried out after that date by the Centre d'expertise hydrique du Québec (CEH) and its various partners. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • The Planning Unit (AU) is a territorial reference unit that applies to forest territories within the domain of the State pursuant to section 13 of the Sustainable Forest Land Management Act (SADTF). There are currently 59 AU in Quebec's public forest territory. The Sustainable Forest Management Strategy provides guidelines and objectives for sustainable forest management for this forest area. The purpose of this delimitation of forest territory is to define areas for the production of resources. For example, the Minister may grant various forest rights in this territory, such as supply guarantees (AMs), harvesting permits for the purpose of supplying a merchant timber processing plant (PRAU), harvesting permits for the purpose of supplying a non-market timber processing plant, i.e. forest biomass (PRBIO), maple maple maple maple (mixed production) permits, blueberry (blueberry forest) permits, mining rights permits (mining concessions) and legal protections for experimental forests (FE). The UAs are located south of the territorial boundary of attributable forests (northern boundary) and cover almost all of Quebec's forest territory. __A new delimitation of the AU has been in force since April 1, 2018.__ **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • Territorial cutting used by the MFFP where the market value of stumber (VMBSP) calculated by the BMMB is required for timber of a given species and quality, which must be uniform. **A new delimitation of forest pricing zones has been in effect since April 1, 2019.** **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • Territorial unit applicable to the forest territory of the State domain which can combine one to several planning units (AU), only GAs 05 and 14 include one AU. In an RGA, the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks (MFFP) allocates volumes of “Supply Guarantee” (GA) type timber to beneficiaries. The Sustainable Forest Land Management Act (SLAFA) provides that the [Supply Guarantee (GA)] (http://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/les-forets/amenagement-durable-forets/les-droits-consentis/la-garantie-dapprovisionnement-ga/) entitles its beneficiary to purchase annually a volume of timber from public forestry territories of one or more RGAs, for the purpose of supplying the wood processing plant for which guarantee is granted. The guarantee shall indicate the annual volumes of wood, by petrol or group of species, which can be purchased annually by the beneficiary, from each of the regions covered by the guarantee. For more information on the list of recipients with their volume allocations by RGA, please refer to [tables by region.](http://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/les-forets/amenagement-durable-forets/les-droits-consentis/la-garantie-dapprovisionnement-ga/droits-forestiers-application-garanties-dapprovisionnement-ga/) **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • The territories of the state domain on which [rights granted] (http://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/les-forets/amenagement-durable-forets/les-droits-consentis/) include timber volume allocations defined by the MFFP. There are different types of rights granted depending on the purpose (s) of use (s): [Supply Guarantees (GA)] (http://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/les-forets/amenagement-durable-forets/les-droits-consentis/la-garantie-dapprovisionnement-ga/), [timber harvesting permits for the purpose of supplying a wood processing plant (PRAU)] (https://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/forets/entreprises/entreprises-permis-transformation.jsp), biomass PRAU (PRBIO) and [Delegation Agreements (ED)] (http://mffp.gouv.qc.ca/les-forets/amenagement-durable-forets/les-droits-consentis/lentente-de-delegation-de-gestion-ed/)) $ on residual forest territories regulate forest management activities according to the various legal documents issued by the MFFP. [Forests d'enseignement et de recherche (ERF)] (https://www.mffp.gouv.qc.ca/forets/connaissances/recherche/soutien/connaissances-recherche-soutien-foret.jsp) allow forestry management activities for teaching and research purposes under the contract issued by the MFFP. The Duchesnay Forest Station allows forestry management activities for educational, research and tourism purposes according to the contract issued by the MFFP. Land management agreements (GTCs) on residual forest territories allow forest management activities and land management in accordance with the agreement issued by the MERN. Category 1 (TC1) lands are subject to conditional ownership rights dedicated to Aboriginal nations under the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement and oversee forest management activities. It is possible to identify the different beneficiaries of active rights from the 'Beneficiaries' table. The correspondence between a granted territory and the beneficiaries applies by linking the table to the dataset by the territory number (NO_TERRI). **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**
