Québec Peat Moss Producers Association (APTHQ)
The principal mandates of the Quebec Peat Moss Producers Association are to promote the horticultural peat industry, to represent and defend the interests of its members, to raise awareness of responsible peatland use among producers, and to let the public know about this essential agricultural and horticultural resource that is a component of several frequently-used products.
The Québec Peat Moss Producers Association coordinates the Peat and Substrate Cluster
In 2007, the provincial government and the peat moss industry signed a five-year agreement as part of the ACCORD strategy in order to set up a niche of excellence in the Bas-Saint-Laurent that would focus on promoting peat moss and agri-environmental technology.
The Peat and Substrate Cluster (Créneau tourbe et substrats in French) is both flexible and dynamic, and unites manufacturers, certain governmental departments, research centres involved in the field and regional development agencies.
The activities of the Cluster, which follow an action plan directed at supporting the development of businesses in the area, are carried out by its members through unifying structuring projects.
