2. Despite the first paragraph of section 1 of this Regulation and the second paragraph of section 62 of the Act to amend the Natural Heritage Conservation Act and other provisions (S.Q. 2021, c. 1), the provisions of the regulations adopted for each biodiversity reserve and ecological reserve established as at 18 March 2021 that concern their establishment, boundaries and plan, as they read on that date, remain in force despite the coming into force of the first regulation made under section 44 of the Natural Heritage Conservation Act (chapter C-61.01) that applies to those reserves.
Those provisions are deemed to have been made in accordance with section 27 of the Natural Heritage Conservation Act and the Government may assign the reserves concerned any other protection status, apply any other conservation measure to them, amend their boundaries or terminate their designation in accordance with section 42 of that Act.
