Action Plan for the Victorin’s Gentian (Gentianopsis virgata ssp. victorinii) in Canada

The Victorin’s Gentian is an endemic herbaceous annual or biennial plant that grows mainly along the upper shoreline of the freshwater or slightly brackish marshes of the St. Lawrence River estuary area in Quebec. The Victorin’s Gentian was listed as Threatened on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act in July 2005. The Minister of the Environment and the Minister responsible for the Parks Canada Agency are the competent ministers for the recovery of the Victorin’s Gentian and have prepared this action plan to implement the recovery strategy, as per section 49 of SARA. It has been prepared in cooperation with the Government of Quebec. This action plan follows from the Recovery Strategy for the Victorin’s Gentian (Gentianopsis virgata ssp. Victorinii) in Canada.

Consultation period: 2014-02-25 to 2014-04-26
