We Want to Hear From You!

Parks Canada is reviewing the management plan for Gros Morne National Park and we would like to hear your views, opinions and suggestions on the future of this treasured place.

Discussion Paper: Building a Vision for the Future

The management plan is a strategic guide for future management of a national park. It is required by legislation, guided by public consultation, approved by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada, and tabled in Parliament. It is the primary public accountability document for each National Park.

As a strategic and long-term guide, a management plan establishes a vision looking 10 or more years into the future. Its primary goal is to ensure that there is a clearly defined direction for the maintenance or restoration of ecological integrity and is intended to guide appropriate use. Direction is also described for heritage presentation programs, which are recognized as a fundamental means for achieving both protection and use objectives.

Next Steps for Gros Morne

In Gros Morne National Park, we are currently preparing a new management plan that will guide our vision for the park into the future. After successful consultation sessions with our partners, stakeholders and the public, we have prepared an overview of what we heard and a draft of our new management plan that reflects the extensive feedback that we received. These documents are prepared for your consideration.

A summary of the Areas Management Workshop final report is available in English upon request at pc.grosmorneconsultations.pc@canada.ca.

At this point in the planning process we would like to hear your views and opinions on the draft management plan for Gros Morne National Park. This is your opportunity to have your say before the management plan is finalized.
