A management plan outlines the vision and strategic direction for a national historic site. It is a key public accountability document that outlines Parks Canada’s commitment to Canadians about how we will protect and manage the future of the national historic site.

Each national historic site managed by Parks Canada has a management plan.

A new Management Plan for the Site

We are beginning to prepare a new management plan for Fort St. James National Historic Site. Nearly 10 years have passed since the current Management Plan was approved. It is now time to prepare a new, updated plan for the site that addresses current circumstances and concerns.

Before we start drafting a new plan, we want to hear from you!

Phase 1 of consultations on a new Management Plan for Fort St. James National Historic Site are now open

This is an opportunity for you to share your input and perspective on how the site should be managed over the next 10 years.

We want to hear your thoughts on the site’s programs, facilities, and services. What is going well, and where can we improve? What challenges and opportunities should we seek to address?

To share your feedback:

Take our survey. The survey will be open until September 5, 2022. You can fill it out online or complete a paper copy at the site Visitor Centre. You can also mail us a copy.



Speak with Parks Canada staff in person about the new management plan during the annual Salmon Cookoff at the site on July 16, 2022.
