Help shape the future of Jasper National Park

Guided by input received in 2019 through Indigenous, public and stakeholder engagement, Parks Canada has developed a draft management plan for Jasper National Park. The management plan lays out the future direction for the park including a vision, key strategies and objectives to achieve over the next 10 years. This draft plan will be further refined in collaboration with Indigenous partners, stakeholders and interested Canadians. Contribute as much or as little as you like – we value all your feedback!

The Jasper National Park Draft Management Plan

Parks Canada has coordinated development of the draft management plans for the mountain national parks. Consistency and common strategies within the plans demonstrates our commitment to key priorities and to a landscape level approach. Common themes and priorities you will see included in the Jasper National Park plan and in the plans for the other mountain national parks include:

  • Conserving natural and cultural heritage for future generations;
  • True to place experiences;
  • Strengthening Indigenous relations;
  • Connect, collaborate and learn together;
  • Managing development; and
  • Climate change and adaptive management.

Under the Canada National Parks Act we are required to review our park management plan every ten years. We last updated our park management plan in 2010. New management plans were initially due in 2020 for the seven mountain national parks. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consultation was paused on the draft management plans, and the deadline has been extended. We are now ready to resume consultation!

Feedback from the first phase of Indigenous and public engagement in 2019 is summarized in What we heard: Jasper National Park and What we heard: Mountain parks executive summary.

Thanks for your feedback!

Online consultation events closed on July 8, 2021.

Thank you for your interest and participation. Further updates about the new management plan for Jasper National Park will be posted on this page when available.
