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 be formally collaborating with the following partners:
Churchill Northern Studies Centre
Churchill Northern Studies Centre (CNSC) is Manitoba’s premier independent, non-profit northern research and education facility. CNSC is mandated to provide logistical support to scientific researchers working on a diverse range of topics of interest to northern science, and to serve as an education centre which facilitates a wide range of programming, from general interest courses for the visiting public to university credit courses for students. Parks Canada and CNSC are working together to offer a public archaeology experience at Prince of Wales Fort National Historic Site to connect people to Canada’s heritage through hands-on discovery, guided by Parks Canada archaeologists.
Explore is a philanthropic multimedia organization that documents and features a wide range of topics from around the world — from animal rights, health and human services, and poverty to the environment, education, and spirituality. Explore’s growing library consists of more than 250 original films and 30,000 photographs from around the world which are showcased at film festivals, on over 100 public broadcast and cable channels, and on numerous online destinations including explore.org. Explore is funded by the Annenberg Foundation.
Explore and Parks Canada are partnering to help foster awareness and appreciation for the subarctic-coastal tundra ecosystem and the wildlife that inhabits this region through webcams installed in Wapusk National Park and at Prince of Wales Fort National Historic Site in Churchill, Manitoba, broadcasting live on Explore’s website, explore.org.
Winnipeg Art Gallery
The Winnipeg Art Gallery is a cultural advocate - a lens and a forum - helping people see and experience more through art. The WAG works to engage people of all ages and backgrounds and thrives as a creative and accessible place for learning, discovery, and inspiration through art.
Parks Canada and the WAG are joining in marking Canada 150 with ART EXPRESS’D / ART EXPRIMÉ, a Signature Project reaching from coast-to-coast-to-coast consisting of three shipping containers transformed into mobile art studios. With an accompanying artist/educator ART EXPRESS’D / ART EXPRIMÉ will traverse every province and territory via train, truck and cargo ship, stopping in 15 communities and ultimately converging in Winnipeg, the heart of the country. Parks Canada is partnering with the WAG to host a fourth art studio at Parks Canada Place at The Forks NHS for the duration of summer 2017, and a stop in Churchill August 2 - 6. Parks Canada is pleased to deliver programming as part of the ART EXPRESS’D / ART EXPRIMÉ experience, offering a new inspirational and enjoyable way for Canadians to connect with Parks Canada.
