State of the Community Report 2006 (Copies of this report are available by contacting the Office of the Superintendent.)
The current community plan for Field was approved in 1999. This review of the plan is based on a state of the community report, prepared in 2006, which assessed the ecological, cultural, economic, and social health of the community. It was undertaken in collaboration with the Field Community Council, the Canadian Pacific Railway, Field residents, and other interested stakeholders. The plan will be periodically reviewed to ensure that its vision remains sound and that the direction in the plan continues to be relevant to the community of Field.
National Historic Site Management Plans
National historic sites commemorate the diversity of human experience and the legacy of thousands of years of human history. They mark the tangible cultural remains of the lives and stories of the people who forged Canada. The family of national historic sites is very large, encompassing more than 900 sites and representing every province and territory. Parks Canada administers more than 150 of these sites including fourteen sites in or near the mountain national parks.
The focus of Parks Canada’s environmental assessment activities is on evaluating potential adverse effects to the natural and cultural resources we protect, and to the visitor experience opportunities we offer.
