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 Point Pelee National Park

In Point Pelee National Park, we are currently preparing a new management plan that will guide our vision for the park into the future. We have prepared an overview of the planning process which also outlines opportunities for your involvement: 

We Want to Hear From You!

At this point in the planning process we would like to hear your views and opinions on the proposed vision for Pointe Pelee National Park (outlined in the overview [LINK]) and the priority issues and opportunities that we are considering as we develop a new plan. This is an opportunity to have your say before the management plan is drafted. Once the plan is drafted, we will hold stakeholder and public consultations – stay tuned for more information on dates to be posted in early 2020.
