The James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (French: Convention de la Baie-James et du Nord québécois) is an Aboriginal land claim settlement, approved in by the Cree and Inuit of northern Quebec, and later slightly modified in by the Northeastern Quebec Agreement (French: Accord du Nord-Est québécois), through which Quebec's Naskapi First Nation joined the treaty. Hudson Bay and James Bay (its southern extension) and all their islands border Nunavut Territory, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. Hudson Strait (c mi/ km long) connects Hudson Bay with the Atlantic Ocean, and Foxe Channel leads to the Arctic Ocean. Mansel, Coats, and Southampton islands are at the northern end of the bay. Since , a total of River Darters were recorded from 29 waterbodies across three ecoregions. River Darters were observed in relatively high abundances in both the Saskatchewan-Nelson River and Southern Hudson Bay-James Bay ecoregions. While still extant in the Great Lakes-Upper St. Lawrence ecoregion, River Darters persist at low abundance.   Map (from Stirling et al. fig. 1) showing average breakup dates (for ) for western Hudson Bay (WH,) and southern Hudson Bay (SH, which includes James Bay). The mean date of breakup for areas I-III (SH) was 17 July ± 2 days and for area IV (WH), 14 July ± 2 days: earlier in WH than in SH, by a few days.

The massive hydropower development plans to build a series of dams, reservoirs and power stations on the Grand River that will cover an area 30 times the size of Prince Edward Island.   When Fred Paisnel lived on the James Bay coast more than 60 years ago, he captured footage to show people back home what life was like in the northern First Nation communities. Today, those videos are finding a new audience and offering a glimpse into the past after his son, Neil, shared them on YouTube.

In , along a roughly-1,mile stretch of coastline along west Hudson Bay and James Bay, scientists estimated that 35 percent of the original habitat had been destroyed, 30 percent had been severely damaged, and 35 percent overgrazed. The situation is particularly serious in many of the sub-Arctic nesting and staging areas.

Hudson and James Bay Lowlands, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec. If the boreal forest is the global ‘king’ of carbon, the Hudson Bay Lowlands would be the crown jewel. Wetlands dominate this open, expansive region in a way that is rarely found anywhere on Earth, and almost nowhere in terms of sheer scale.

Affecting the regions east of James Bay and southeast of Hudson Bay, the James Bay development project would be one of the largest hydroelectric complexes in the. Sailing with Charles’ backing, on the same expedition but different ships, the men attempted a journey to Hudson Bay in But des Groseilliers was the only one to make it, after a storm damaged Radisson’s ship and forced him to return to England.

The Hudson Bay Lowland is a vast (, km 2), flat (average slope m/km) physiographic region of Canada located to the southwest of James Bay and Hudson is underlain by Paleozoic and Mesozoic rocks and bounded by Precambrian terrains.

Thin Pleistocene till sheets, locally deposited on fluted terrains mantle most of the Lowland, and they are overlain by thin marine.

HUDSON BAY AND JAMES BAY INTRODUCTION. Geology. The Ontario coasts of Hudson Bay and James Bay delimit a major physiographic unit of Canada, the Hudson Bay Lowland (HBL) that is the second largest unconfined peatland of the world after the West Siberia Plain (Fig.

HBL 1, CIS 2).The Hudson Bay Lowland is bounded by Precambrian rocks of the Canadian Shield and is underlain by.

By comparing the shell dates with modelled mean-ocean reservoir age d we derive ΔR values for the southeastern Hudson Bay and James Bay of ± 50 yr, for the northern Hudson Bay and. Background.

The greater Hudson Bay and James Bay region is a critical ecosystem for wildlife and communities that rely on them. Its historical significance is rivaled only by its huge potential for further economic development; yet it remains one of the least funded and understudied regions in Canada, lacking an integrated governance structure.

Hudson Bay (Inuktitut: Kangiqsualuk ilua, French: baie d'Hudson) (sometimes called Hudson's Bay, usually historically) is a large body of saltwater in northeastern Canada with a surface area of 1, km 2 (, sq mi).

Although not geographically apparent, it is for climatic reasons considered to be a marginal sea of the Arctic drains a very large area, about 3, km 2.

At the continent scale, the boreal forest is a floristically poor biome. Hudson Bay Lowland, a wetland area of Canada that covers aboutsquare km (, square miles) on the southern shores of Hudson Bay and James Bay, surrounded by the Canadian falls largely in Ontario and Manitoba, with a small extension into Quebec.

It is part of a sedimentary basin that extends beneath Hudson Bay and James Bay. The Paleozoic limestone was covered by. Research in HB has been limited in the past, compared to other Arctic ecosystems. Two surveys of phytoplankton and zooplankton have been completed in HB assessing lower trophic levels: one in sampling from James Bay (JB) along the east coast of HB into Hudson Strait (HS) (Harvey et al.,Harvey et al., ) and a second in running east to west through the middle of HB.

Hudson Bay Company Introduction The Hudson's Bay Company provides us with some of the most extensive document collections used to obtain further insights into Trapper Medicine.

Due to the lengthy history of Hudson's Bay's interactions in Canada and the Midwestern and Northwestern United States, we are able to document some fairly lengthy lists of medicine employed. The Ring of Fire region is part of Ontario’s ecologically significant far north, which contains the world’s largest area of boreal forest that is free from large-scale human disturbance.

The Ring of Fire is also in the James Bay Lowlands – part of the Hudson Bay Lowlands, which form the world’s largest peatland.

From tothe Hudson Bay Complex LME #63 has warmed by °C, thus belonging to Category 3 (moderate warming LME). The Hudson Bay warming was steady. The all-time minimum of °C was attained inin the end of a long-term cooling epoch. The post long-term warming resulted in SST increase of >1°C over the next 20 years.

Ontario’s Far North, made up of the Hudson Bay and James Bay Lowlands, and the Canadian Shield, is one of the world’s largest and most pristine wildernesses.

Nearly twice the size of the United Kingdom, the Far North covers 42 per cent of Ontario’s land mass, is home to the world’s second-largest peatland ecosystem and contains the.In fact about 15 years after the charter was granted, the company was generating profits of % yearly.

In the late s and early s, the company established a number of posts along the shores of Hudson Bay and James Bay. By the mid s, the Hudson’s Bay Company was becoming a fairly profitable company.The development of Quebec’s hydroelectric resources at James Bay has been highly controversial.

Some conservation groups argue that the building of large generating systems could damage the environment irrevocably, devastate indigenous fish and wildlife, and destroy the culture of the Cree people who live in the region.
