The development of a new management plan for Bar U Ranch National Historic Site is underway. This management plan, developed in part through engagement with Indigenous partners, stakeholders, youth and other interested Canadians, will set out a vision and strategic direction for the site, along with specific objectives over the next 10 years.

The final phase of engagement and consultations is now open, which will run from December 8, 2020 to February 8, 2021. You are invited to review the What We Heard report, the newsletter and the draft management plan.

The first phase of public engagement was completed in 2019. As a part of Parks Canada’s COVID-19 response, all public consultations and engagement were suspended so that efforts could focus on critical operations. With Bar U Ranch’s 2020 operational season complete, a second phase of consultation can now take place.
