Management actions result in improvements to ecological integrity indicators in national parks, and the state of cultural resources in national historic sites is improved.
90% of national parks have at least 1 improved ecological integrity indicator from March 2008 to March 2013.
As of 2008—2009, 39 national parks, representing 93% of Canada's national parks, have identified key indicators of ecological integrity. 25 parks have already determined the status and trend of these indicators, providing the baseline information against which improvements in ecological integrity indicators will be evaluated in 2013. Priority active management and restoration initiatives for improving ecological integrity indicators were identified in 24 national parks, representing 57% of all national parks.
70% of the condition of cultural resources elements of commemorative integrity rated as poor are improved within 5 years (of the original assessment).
This performance expectation was mostly met (60%) as 3 of 5 national historic sites with the condition of cultural resources elements rated as poor-Battle of the Windmill, Fort Henry and Twin Falls Teahouse-improved that rating within 5 years.
70% of the management practices elements of commemorative integrity rated as poor are improved within 5 years (of the original assessment).
This performance expectation was exceeded as 5 of 7 national historic sites (71%) with the management practices elements rated as poor-Alexander Graham Bell, Carillon Canal, Battle of Châteauguay, Fort Henry and Cave and Basin-improved that rating within 5 years. Fort George and Fort Mississauga national historic sites did not improve their rating.
