Parks Canada will provide direct financial and technical assistance to participating governments for the completion of studies and plans leading to the nomination and designation of Canadian Heritage Rivers.

Parks Canada will provide the Board and its member governments with technical assistance on matters concerning the nomination, designation and management of Canadian Heritage Rivers, and will undertake national river studies on behalf of the Board.

Through a Secretariat operated on behalf of the Board, Parks Canada will provide support for plaquing ceremonies to commemorate the designation of rivers to the System, assume the cost of a national and international public information program for the System, and will provide support for coordinating the ongoing monitoring of designated rivers.
