Partnering with Parks Canada
By working in collaboration with respected organisations that share our values, Parks Canada is able to better deliver its promise to Canadians by continuing to be a world leader in the protection and presentation of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. We believe in sharing leadership and working with our partners to offer unique, inspiring opportunities for Canadians to discover our treasured places and to achieve extraordinary results.
We are proud to be formally collaborating with the following local partners:
Canadian Wildlife Federation
Parks Canada is pleased to welcome the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) to Pacific Rim National Park Reserve as part of CWF's first BC-based summer institute, a unique and innovative program of professional development for educators. During the institute, a select group of participants from across Canada will explore and expand their knowledge of the natural and cultural heritage of the West Coast through hands-on learning they can't wait to take back to their classrooms. Program elements include rainforest and marine education activities, sand dune restoration, First Nations language instruction, paddleboarding, canoeing, yoga and videography. Participants will spend several days at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, camping and learning from Parks Canada staff about wildlife conservation, biodiversity and species at risk, as well as the rich culture of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations.
