Planning for the Future: Management Planning Update

What is a management plan?

A management plan is a forward-looking document that provides a vision for a national park or national historic site at its future best and the strategies for getting there. The new management plan for the Klondike National Historic Sites will guide Parks Canada's decisions and actions in protecting, presenting and operating Dawson Historical Complex, Dredge No.4, S.S. Keno, the Former Territorial Court House, and Discovery Claim.

The Management Planning Process

Management plans are reviewed every five years, with input and involvement from partners, stakeholders and the public, to ensure that the plan remains valid and effective. The Klondike National Historic Sites planning program began with an assessment of the state of the sites, which identified key issues to be addressed in the development of the new plan. A final draft management plan has now been prepared and submitted to the CEO of Parks Canada for final review. At the end of this process, we anticipate approval by the Minister of the Environment. This website will be updated when the plan is approved.
