A path to shared management with the Mi'kmaq to protect the environment and connect Canadians to nature in Cape Breton

INGONISH, NS, Nov. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - National parks are gateways to discovering, learning about, and connecting with nature. Parks Canada is a recognized leader in conservation and takes action to protect national parks and national marine conservation areas and contribute to the recovery of species at risk.

The management plan for Cape Breton Highlands National Park was recently tabled in Parliament. Reviewed every 10 years, management plans are a requirement of the Canada National Parks Act and guide the management of national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas.

The updated plan for Cape Breton Highlands National Park outlines the following key strategies:

  • A Path to Shared Management with the Mi'kmaq
  • Shared Conservation in the Context of Change
  • A Destination Inspired by Community, Nature, and Culture
  • Optimizing Operations to Connect Canadians with Cape Breton Highlands National Park

The management plan for Cape Breton Highlands National Park was based on input from the Mi'kmaq of Nova Scotia, Les Amis du Plein Air, la Socit Saint-Pierre, other partners and stakeholders, local residents as well as visitors past and present. Through this management plan, Parks Canada will protect an important example of natural heritage in Canada, engage and collaborate with Indigenous peoples, and provide an opportunity for Canadians to experience and discover our environment in new and innovative ways.
