Government of Quebec

Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles (MERN)

Public land, which accounts for 92% of Québec’s total territory, makes a significant contribution to the province’s socio-economic development through its broad range of resources. The development of all these natural resources creates tens of thousands of jobs in a variety of economic sectors, and benefits all the regions.

The MERN’s role is to manage Québec’s land and resources.
