The Committee also presented a new brochure designed for visitors. Since Entry Island is a popular site for many tourists and Islanders, these tools, created with the support of the Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l'environnement, aim to reduce the impact of human presence on the natural environment.

The brochure, which includes a map of Entry Island, clearly highlights the trails and sites to visit. As for the signage system and interpretation panels, in addition to directing visitor traffic, they provide visitors with information on the island’s history and natural attractions.

“We are very pleased to present these new tools to members of our community, the partners that supported us and our visitors, whether they come from near or far," said Thelma Ann Feltmate, President of the Future Committee. “The tools will definitely help us greet and guide the thousands of visitors that we receive every year.”

“Entry Island’s natural environments are important for many species of seabirds,” explained Marie-Anne Sauvé, Executive Director of the Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l'environnement. “The Future Committee’s goal was to make it possible for the approximately 8,000 annual visitors who come to admire the view from the top of Big Hill to make the most of their visit while preserving Entry Island’s rich ecology.”

The brochure is distributed free of charge at the Tourisme Îles de la Madeleine information centre, on board Groupe CTMA boats and the Ivan Quinn ferry, at the Excursions en Mer kiosk, at the Entry Island museum, at the Little Red School House, at the Veteran’s Museum at Grosse-Île and at the Musée de la Mer at Havre-Aubert.

This project was sponsored by the Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l’environnement, the Caisse Populaire des Rames, the Ministère des Affaires municipales, des Régions et de l’Occupation du territoire, Emploi-Québec, Groupe CTMA and Germain Chevarie, the MLA for Îles-de-la-Madeleine. The project also received in-kind support from the Magdalen Islands CEDEC, the Council for Anglophone Magdalen Islanders and the Municipalité des Îles-de-la-Madeleine. This sustainable tourism development initiative could not have been possible without the invaluable support of these organizations.

The Entry Island Future Committee is actively involved in all issues concerning the well being of the community of Entry Island and often acts as a link between the community and various government bodies and service providers. However, the principal mandate of the organization has been summarized as follows: “To carry out development projects such as those described in the Three-year Strategic Development Plan Oriented towards Tourism for the Community of Entry Island and to represent the community of Entry Island in matters relating to the development and harmonization of tourism activities on the Island.”

The Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l'environnement supports organizations taking practical steps to protect, restore and enhance natural areas and educate communities about local environmental issues. Between 2001 and 2010, the Foundation granted $9.7 million to 160 projects, carried out in all of Québec’s administrative regions, with a total value of about $33 million.
