Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Anticosti Aster (Symphyotrichum anticostense) in Canada

The Anticosti Aster (Symphyotrichum anticostense) is a perennial flowering plant. It is listed as Threatened under Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act. The current Canadian distribution is restricted to coastal areas of south-central Anticosti Island, the rivers feeding into the north shore of Baie des Chaleurs in the Gaspé Peninsula, Lac Saint-Jean (one location, at Mashteuiatsh), and along several large fast-flowing rivers in northern, central and southern New Brunswick. The Minister of Environment is the competent minister for the recovery of the Anticosti Aster and has prepared this strategy, as per section 37 of SARA. It has been prepared in cooperation with the Government of Québec and the Government of New Brunswick.

Consultation period: 2012-03-07 to 2012-05-06
