59. In the application zone of the Plan de rétablissement du caribou forestier under a program referred to in paragraph 2 of section 7 of the Act respecting threatened or vulnerable species (chapter E-12.01), no forest development activity may be carried out in a territory of 4 ha or more in a single block, of the LA1 or RE1 ecological type or recognized as being dry bare soil with lichen. That plan is accessible on the website of the department within which the Minister responsible for the application of that plan carries out duties. However, a forest development activity may be carried out there if it is authorized as part of an activity or project for which a certificate of authorization was issued following a decision of the authority concerned made under section 31.5, 164 or 201 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) or if it is authorized by the Minister as part of the application of the Sustainable Forest Development Act (chapter A-18.1) after consulting the Minister responsible for the administration of the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife (chapter C-61.1).
This section does not apply to a person who, in accordance with section 41 of the Sustainable Forest Development Act, has been authorized by the Minister to build or improve a road in a forest stand referred to in the first paragraph of this section, nor to a person who has obtained such authorization under a forestry permit or a contract or agreement entered into under that Act.
