Jasper National Park

Towards an Implementation Strategy for
the Maligne Valley

UPDATE: October 6, 2014


 

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 ten 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 has reviewed the current situation in the valley to better understand the issues identified in the Jasper National Park Management Plan; developed more detailed objectives for what we want to achieve in the valley; and drafted potential actions that could assist us in meeting those objectives.

Backgrounders

Maligne Valley Situation Analysis (Phase I):

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.

We greatly appreciate all the comments that we received during Phase I of our consultations. The Maligne Valley Situation Analysis is a much stronger document thanks to everyone’s feedback. We look forward to receiving your feedback on the management actions proposed within the Maligne Valley Implementation Strategy.
