The population was assessed as endangered by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada in 2009 and has been listed as endangered in Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) since 2011. The Minister of the Environment is responsible for the recovery of the Horned Grebe, Magdalen Islands population, and developed this program pursuant to section 37 of SARA. The program was developed in cooperation with the Government of Quebec (Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune du Québec (MRNF)).
