Although provincial parks are not the same as national parks, their structures and purposes are very similar. The provincial and territorial parks systems generally have various park categories. In the province of Quebec, the provincial parks are labelled "national parks" and are all IUCN category II protected areas (like at the federal level, and as opposed to many provincial parks), and are managed by Société des établissements de plein air du Québec. Many parks in the other provinces have the IUCN designation.)
    • found: Parcs Québec website, Mar. 14, 2013:English home page (Québec national parks are officially recognized protected areas. The mission of Parcs Québec is to protect and promote the natural environments of Quebec's 43 designated nature areas and sites of outstanding natural beauty. Accordingly, Québec's national parks are managed so as to strike a balance between the conservation of their natural and cultural heritage, and public access for education and recreation purposes.) Mission - more information (What is a National Park? A national park is an area representative of a natural region and whose vocation is to preserve natural and cultural heritage. The national park concept is everywhere in the world, and Québec is no exception. The Parcs Québec network meets all of the international standards defined by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). In this context, Québec's national parks are managed to maintain balance between the conservation of natural and cultural heritage and public access. ... in 2001, the Parks Act was amended to replace the concepts of conservation and recreation parks with the designation of national park, meeting the criteria established by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The story does not end here because the Québec government is currently working on the creation of many parks that will mainly be located north of the 50th parallel. Parc national des Pingualuit, created in 2004, is the first example.)
