Parks Canada is a federal agency and the custodian of national parks, many national historic sites and the national marine conservation areas of Canada. It is committed through its mandate and charter to enabling Canadians to have memorable experiences but in a way that ensures the protection of the natural and cultural heritage (which includes archaeological heritage) of these special places. Our work is based on integrating protection, education and unforgettable experiences.
