Management Plan

Strategic direction respecting shared management of the site

Shared management is characterized by the continuous, active participation of two or more partners operating a historic site with a view to ensuring its commemorative integrity.

This approach dovetails with one of the main strategic objectives of Parks Canada’s Corporate Plan, which is aimed at actively including Canadians in decision-making and program implementation for heritage areas.

Accordingly, Parks Canada favours partnership with the regional community in terms of the commemoration, preservation and presentation of Grosse Île . Partnership procedures will be established in accordance with the Framework for the implementation of Shared Management of National Historic Sites (November 1995) and its subsequent modifications.
