40. The Government’s decision to designate an area as a protected area comes into force on the date of its publication in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
The decision must be published together with the plan establishing the boundaries of the protected area.
A copy of the plan must be sent (1) to the ministers and government bodies concerned, in particular to the minister responsible for natural resources for entry on the land use plan prepared under section 21 of the Act respecting the lands in the domain of the State (chapter T-8.1) and in the registers of rights kept by that Minister;
(2) to the Aboriginal communities concerned; and
(3) to the municipalities whose territories are within a protected area so that it may be taken into consideration in the exercise of their powers.
