Towards an Implementation Strategy for the Maligne Valley

What is the Maligne Valley Implementation Strategy?

The Maligne Valley Implementation Strategy is an action plan that will guide Parks Canada’s work in the valley over the next five to eight years. The Implementation Strategy will elaborate upon the direction within the 2010 Jasper National Park Management Plan.

How is Parks Canada developing the Implementation Strategy?

In order to identify more detailed and specific actions for the Maligne Valley, Parks Canada is:

  • Reviewing the current situation in the valley to better understand the issues identified in the Jasper National Park Management Plan;
  • Developing more detailed objectives for what we want to achieve in the valley; and
  • Identifying potential actions that could assist us in meeting those objectives

We have started by documenting what we know about the valley in a Situation Analysis. Later this fall, we will be discussing proposed actions for the valley. 


We value your input

Public involvement is a cornerstone of policy, planning and management practices of Parks Canada. It helps to ensure sound decision-making, build public understanding, and provide opportunities for Canadians to contribute their knowledge, expertise and suggestions. Parks Canada will be soliciting your input in two phases.
