Safety, it’s part of our nature

In the great outdoors, preparation and prevention are the key to a safe and enjoyable experience. Put all the chances on your side; make safety your priority.

These tips are provided by Québec’s regional parks, with the financial support of the Québec government.

Before you go
  • Use an official map of the area in planning your outing or contact park officials for itinerary suggestions.
  • Choose an itinerary that suits your abilities and those of your partners.
  • Check the weather and adjust your objectives accordingly.
  • Dress appropriately for the season and the activity. The multi-layer system is ideal for managing your body temperature in all seasons.
  • Never rely on others, always bring what you need to support yourself:
    – A fully charged phone and a whistle;
    – A sufficient amount of water and food;
    – Map of the area;
    – First aid kit;
    – Headlamp;
    – Contingency supplies (ex : extra clothes).
  • Inform a close friend about your itinerary and its duration. This person will be your guardian angel and can notify the emergency services should you go missing.
  • Make sure you know the rules and regulations, and hours of operation. Get a pass at the park entrance or online.
During your excursion
  • Write down the emergency contact number and the procedure to follow when in areas without mobile phone coverage.
  • Leave early enough to complete your activity before dark or have the necessary equipment to remain safe after sunset in case of unforeseen circumstances.
  • At intersections, take the time to check your position and wait for your partners.
  • Conserve your energy by taking regular breaks. Use this time to eat and drink.
  • Respect your limits and do not hesitate to turn back if the chosen activity or route prove to be too difficult.
  • It is wiser not to set out by yourself.
When you return
  • Let your guardian angel know once you are back.
  • Let park staff know of any breakage or potentially dangerous areas observed during your visit.
