“Archaeological heritage is an essential element in the affirmation of
our Canadian identity and a source of inspiration and knowledge. It is the policy
of the Government of Canada to protect and manage this heritage.”
Archaeological Heritage Policy Framework, Department of Canadian Heritage, Ottawa, 1990
Parks Canada is a federal agency and the custodian of national parks,
many national historic sites and the national marine conservation areas of
Canada. It is committed through its mandate and charter to enabling Canadians
to have memorable experiences but in a way that ensures the protection of
the natural and cultural heritage (which includes archaeological heritage)
of these special places. Our work is based on integrating protection, education
and unforgettable experiences.
