Partnering with Parks Canada
By working in collaboration with respected organisations that share our values, Parks Canada is able to better deliver its promise to Canadians by continuing to be a world leader in the protection and presentation of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. We believe in sharing leadership and working with our partners to offer unique, inspiring opportunities for Canadians to discover our treasured places and to achieve extraordinary results.
We are proud to formally collaborate with the following local partners:
Camping & RVing BC Coalition
Camping and RVing BC is a coalition of partners that manage or represent over 1,700 campgrounds throughout British Columbia. The coalition provides planning information to help travellers locate RV rentals and unique campsites, make reservations, seek out attractions and find things to do. In addition to Camping and RVing at Parks Canada places throughout BC, the coalition includes provincial campgrounds (BC Parks), privately operated campgrounds and RV parks (including municipal campgrounds) and Recreation Sites and Trails BC (operated by the provincial government). British Columbia’s vast mountain ranges, miles of beaches, sparkling lakes, flowing rivers and lush, green forests offer the ultimate camping and RVing experience.
Canadian Wildlife Federation – Canadian Conservation Corps Program
The Canadian Conservation Corps (CCC) Program is funded by the Government of Canada, through the Canada Service Corps. This three-part program presents an exciting opportunity for young Canadians 18-30 years of age, to learn, grow and experience Canada in a unique way while having a real impact on conservation.
The program deeply engages young Canadians in our natural and cultural heritage through three modes of experiential learning: leadership training, Wilderness Adventure (a wilderness expedition), Service to the community through a conservation field work placement and Education outreach in their local community. Parks Canada is proud to participate in the field work component of the program with placements at locations throughout Vancouver Island.
