Parks Canada is Renewing the Management Plan for Grasslands National Park
The management of a national park is guided by a park management plan. This strategic direction is required by legislation and informed by consultation with Indigenous partners, other partners and stakeholders and the Canadian public. Once approved by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada, the management plan is tabled in Parliament, serving as the primary public accountability document for the national park.
Providing strategic and long-term direction for park management, the plan outlines a 10 to 15-year vision as well as objectives for the 10-year lifespan of the plan. The management plan outlines direction for the maintenance and restoration of ecological integrity, land acquisition, public enjoyment, visitor programs and outreach, as well as priorities for collaboration and partnership.
Draft Management Plan
Public consultation on the draft management plan has now closed. In response to the draft plan, Parks Canada received feedback from a wide variety of individuals, groups and organizations with an interest in the future of Grasslands National Park. While not all suggestions received may be reflected in the final management plan, Parks Canada will take note of all ideas to inform operational decision making regarding the park.
