Quebec’s Minister of Tourism, Caroline Proulx, along with the Minister of Forests, Wildlife, and Parks, Pierre Dufour, has announced the first phase of the province’s deconfinement throughout the tourism sector.
All over Quebec, including the Montreal metropolitan area, will be allowed access to campgrounds, cottages, marinas, and provincial parks as of Monday, June 1.
Cottage rentals, including Airbnb, will also reopen, according to Proulx.

Physical distancing measures will be enforced on campsites, including a maximum of ten campers per site who can’t come from more than three different home addresses.
For cottage rentals, only one family can rent a spot at a time and there’s a mandatory 24-hour cleaning period between rentals.
À partir du 1er juin, les Québécois pourront recommencer à profiter de notre belle nature dans les campings, les marinas et certains types d’hébergement touristique. Mais pour que ça fonctionne, on doit continuer de respecter les consignes de santé publique.

Proulx asked Quebecers to do their necessary shopping before visiting cottages and campsites to avoid unnecessary travelling.
The Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (SEPAQ), who oversee 24 provincial parks throughout Quebec, had reopened — with limited services — as of May 20.
