You shared your vision by participating in the survey or by recommending big ideas on the future of Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP) between April and July 2019! We thank you for your participation.

Your feedback helped to identify key issues and opportunities to be considered in the park’s draft management plan. Input has been summarized in a What We Heard report which can be found here.

The management plan, developed in consultation with Indigenous peoples, stakeholders, youth and other interested Canadians, will guide the future of the park, including a vision, key strategies, and objectives for WLNP to achieve over the next 10 years.

The draft plan will be available in early 2020 for further Indigenous and public review and comment prior to finalizing the plan. New management plans are due in 2020 for all mountain national parks, including Waterton Lakes National Park.


Waterton Lakes National Park

"Where the Mountains Meet the Prairies”, Waterton Lakes is the smallest of the 7 national parks in the Canadian Rockies. Only in Waterton can one experience an International Peace Park (1932), a UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve (1979) and World Heritage Site (1995), and an International Dark Sky Park (2017) at the same time.
