The Northern Plan will focus on the integrated and coherent
development of the area covered by the Northern Plan which includes
all of Québec located north of the 49th degree of north
latitude and north of the St. Lawrence River and the Gulf of St.
Lawrence. There are several mining exploration projects and major
mining projects at various stages of development in the north, some
of which require significant access to infrastructures. The
Government of Quebec intends to take steps to facilitate the
implementation of mining and other projects in the area. With
confirmation by the Government of Québec of its intention to
relaunch the Northern Plan by introducing Bill 11, An Act
respecting the Société du Plan Nord, on
September 30, 2014, the implementation of the Northern Plan
continues. Bill 11 reiterates the majority of the elements included
in the former Bill 27, An Act respecting the
Société du Plan Nord, introduced in 2011, which
was examined by a parliamentary committee. However, Bill 11
contains new elements and incorporates differences when compared to
the previous version as outlined in "Relaunching the Northern
Plan: Introduction of the Bill to establish the
Société du Plan Nord" [Link]. Mr.
Couillard's government seems determined to proceed with the
implementation of all mechanisms required for the orderly
deployment of the Northern Plan while the mining sector and
international business community continue to demonstrate interest
in this major plan.
