National Parks System Plan
National parks protect natural environments representative of Canada's natural heritage. These special places are gateways to nature, to adventure, to discovery, to solitude. They celebrate the beauty and infinite variety of our country. Protected and preserved for all Canadians and for the world, each is a sanctuary in which nature is allowed to evolve in its own way, as it has done since the dawn of time. Each provides a haven, not only for plants and animals, but also for the human spirit. A place to wander... to wonder... to discover yourself.
Our goal is to establish a system of national parks that represents each of Canada's distinct natural regions. This system is just over 60% completed.
