Banff Bow Valley Sustainable People Moving

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Parks Canada has committed to creating an expert panel to advise the Agency on the development of a long-term framework for the sustainable movement of visitors in the Banff-Bow Valley. The expert panel will be guided by a Terms of Reference that describes the makeup of the group, their priorities, and how they will work together from 2021-2022 to develop a suite of recommendations for Parks Canada.

Via the survey below, we are seeking your feedback on a draft Terms of Reference for the panel, which has been designed to ensure that the panel represents the appropriate areas of expertise, and that the project scope and scale accurately reflects priority areas for Canadians.

As part of their work, the panel will be asked to consider transportation modes and networks, as well as other strategies and tools relating to how people access, move about and use the park – including new technologies, infrastructure changes, and systems for communication and access. The panel will consider ways to ensure that ecological integrity and conservation of habitat and biodiversity are priorities. It will explore and advise on the use of alternative and renewable energy while reducing waste. And it will offer insights on how to provide diverse mobility options to visitors and residents giving people more choices on how they meet their access needs.

Parks Canada is seeking interested individuals to serve on the Panel. We will appoint a Panel of experts drawing upon capacity identified by the Agency and from expressions of interest received from any individual with expertise in one or more of the areas identified in the Draft Terms of Reference. Individuals wishing to be considered for membership on the Panel may submit their interest to opinion@canada.ca by February 5, 2021.

Finally, once the panel is established, there will be opportunities to advance and present pertinent information for the panel’s consideration. Stay tuned for further information in Spring 2021.
