Kwaï dear members of the Nation,

You can now view online or have printed the hunting & fishing codes:
2021-2022 HUNTING CODE
2021-2022 FISHING CODE

We take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of respecting the terms and conditions indicated in these codes. Since the signing of the first version of the hunting, fishing and trapping agreement between the Government of Quebec and the Nation in 1999, there have only been a handful of incidents. This is to our credit and let’s collectively keep it that way. When in doubt about any of the terms of any of these codes, please feel free to contact me to discuss.

It is also important to remember the existence of the Abenaki Hunting and Fishing Committee. It is an apolitical committee formed by about ten Abenaki members acting as volunteers and having at heart the pursuit of traditional activities such as hunting, fishing and trapping. The committee’s mandate is to formulate recommendations related to the practice of these activities for approval by the Councils. Once approved, the recommendations are then forwarded to the follow-up committee of the hunting, fishing and trapping agreement between the Nation and the Government of Quebec or, depending on the subject, the Government of Canada. It is possible to join the committee at any time. Adjustments to the agreement can be made through comments, concerns or questions raised by the committee. Their contributions are essential to ensure that the agreement is adequate.
