Join the conversation!

Parks Canada is looking to hear from Canadians about a new management plan for Bellevue House National Historic Site, a place where sharing many perspectives and telling inclusive stories around Confederation and Sir John A. Macdonald lead to a better understanding of our past, present and future.

Share your thoughts on programs, facilities and services. What is going well and where can we improve? What is your vision for the site’s future? How can we better present how Macdonald’s controversial legacy continues to influence Canada today?

Management plan information

Management plans are the central documents that guide Parks Canada in the protection, management, and operation of its national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas. Reviewed every 10 years, management plans are required by legislation, guided by public consultation, approved by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada and tabled in Parliament.

Parks Canada has begun the management planning process for Bellevue House National Historic Site.

Management plans are developed through consultation, engagement and input from various people including Indigenous peoples, local and regional residents, visitors, and the public and community organizations.
