Plans and policies
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.
Management plans are strategic in nature, based on a long-term vision, with clear direction for a 10-year period, including measurable objectives and targets to achieve results.
Parks Canada’s management plan guides management decisions and actions at a heritage place, and serves as a key public accountability document for that place.
In Sable Island National Park Reserve, we recently updated our management plan. After successful consultation sessions with our partners, stakeholders and the public, we have created a plan that will guide our vision for the park into the future.
