PARKS CANADA, also known as the Parks Canada Agency, is a Government of Canada agency that is mandated to protect and present nationally significant examples of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage and foster public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment in ways that ensure their ecological and commemorative integrity for present and future generations. Parks Canada manages 42 National Parks (including seven National Park Reserves), 3 National Marine Conservation Areas, 1 National Landmark, and 166 National Historic Sites.

Parks Canada was established in 1911 as the Dominion Parks Branch under the Department of the Interior, becoming the world’s first national park service. Since then it has been formerly known as the National Parks Branch, and the Canadian Parks Service. Parks Canada activities are regulated under the provisions of the Canada National Parks Act, which was enacted in 1930, and amended in 2000.

Since its establishment as a separate service agency in 1998, Parks Canada now falls under the responsibility of Environment Canada.

Parks Canada is currently headed by Mr. Alan Latourelle. Parks Canada has more than 4,000 employees from coast to coast. They work at national parks, national historic sites, national marine conservation areas, national historic canals, administrative offices and service centres. The annual budget for Parks Canada is approximately $500 million.

ONTARIO PARKS administers over 330 parks, covering 9 million hectares that attract over 10 million visits each year, there is a lot to discover!

Ontario has reached a significant milestone: the province’s new Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act came into effect September 4, 2007. The Act is a key initiative in support of Ontario’s Biodiversity Strategy and also complements the province’s Natural Spaces program and the Greenbelt Act.

Ontario is now positioned as a Canadian leader in protected areas legislation. Our world-renowned system of provincial parks, conservation reserves and wilderness areas support natural heritage protection, and provide significant recreational and tourism benefits.

The Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act will guide how these special areas are planned and managed – ensuring that future generations will benefit from a cleaner, healthier and more diverse natural environment.
