Parks for All
Parks for All - A Shared Vision for Canada's Parks Community
The parks and protected areas community, co-led by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) and the Canadian Parks Council (CPC) has been working since 2015 to develop a Parks for All Strategic Framework and to engage the broader community in its design and implementation. This framework is intended to build on a shared vision, define guiding principles, strategic directions and priorities, and implement a bold and coordinated strategy for Canada's network of parks and protected areas.
National consultations were held earlier this year on Draft #2 of the Parks for All Document and revisions are currently underway based on that feedback .
The content of Parks for All strategically aligns with, and complements, the CPRA’s Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015 primarily in relation to Goal 3 “Connecting People and Nature” as well as the Goals of “Active Living” (#1) and Supportive Environments (#4).
The 2017 Canadian Parks Conference was also held in March in Banff, AB - learn more about that event.
