What is a management plan?

The management plan is a strategic document that establishes the vision for a historic site such as the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal National Historic Site looking forward 10 or more years into the future. It presents a vision of the desired future state of the site, the objectives to be reached and the strategies to be used to reach them. The management plan of the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal will guide future decision-making and site management, including site enhancements and services offered.

This document, required by legislation, must be guided by public consultation, approved by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada and tabled in Parliament.
