The ban on driving in the forest was lifted for part of Quebec on June 12.
The ban on access to state lands and forest roads has been partially lifted in Quebec.
Forest activities remain prohibited throughout Abitibi-Témiscamingue , with the exception of part of southern Témiscamingue and the southern portion of La Vérendrye Wildlife Reserve. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests allows the population to circulate again in public forests and roads in these sectors.
The Society of Outdoor Establishments of Quebec (Sépaq) can therefore reopen access to Opémican National Park as of June 14. Sépaq specifies that reservations can be honored as of Wednesday.

In Abitibi, in the southern sector of La Vérendrye wildlife reserve, Sépaq establishments will once again be open to the public.
Access remains prohibited in the northern sector of La Vérendrye wildlife reserve and in Aiguebelle National Park.
The ban on making fires at open sky is still in effect throughout Quebec. The fire danger is low in Témiscamingue and very high in Abitibi-Ouest.
