Action Plan for the False Hop Sedge (Carex lupuliformis) in Quebec

False Hop Sedge is an herbaceous perennial in the sedge family that grows in tufts on the margins of wetlands, including swamps, marshes, floodplains and vernal pools. In Canada, it occurs solely in the southernmost part of Ontario and Quebec. The False Hop Sedge was listed as Endangered on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act in June 2003. The Minister of the Environment is the competent minister for the recovery of the False Hop Sedge and has 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 False Hop Sedge (Carex lupuliformis) in Canada.

A clarification was added concerning the implementation of proposed protection measures on non-federal land. (June 30, 2015)

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