56. A strip of woodland at least 60 m wide must be preserved around a bear den from 15 November to 15 April.
The strip may be harvested outside that period.
The first paragraph does not apply to the holder of a forestry permit issued for public utility works. However, before forest development activities required for public utility works and not authorized by this section may be carried out in the strip of woodland referred to in the first paragraph, the Minister consults the Minister responsible for the administration of the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife (chapter C-61.1) before issuing the permit.
