Consultation has concluded


Parks Canada has drafted new management plans for the mountain national parks.

The draft management plan for Yoho National Park is now available for public review and input.

From April 14 until July 7, 2021, Parks Canada invites the public to provide feedback on the draft management plans for the mountain parks.

Following an initial phase of public consultation where participants described their vision of the mountain national parks ‘at their future best’, and identified important issues and opportunities, feedback was incorporated into draft management plans. The executive summary for the mountain parks’ initial phase of consultation and detailed summary of comments for Kootenay National Park are available online.

An online survey has been prepared to collect feedback on the draft Yoho National Park management plan. The survey asks for feedback on proposed strategies, and the objectives Parks Canada will meet over the next ten years under the strategic direction of the management plan.

Parks Canada has coordinated the development of the draft management plans for the mountain national parks. Consistency and common strategies within the plans demonstrate our commitment to key priorities, and to a landscape-level approach. Common themes and priorities you will see included in the Yoho 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
  • Connecting with Canadians
  • Managing Development
  • Regional Connectivity and Landscapes, and
  • Climate Change and Adaptive Management.

Yoho National Park

Yoho National Park lies on the western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Vertical rock walls, waterfalls and dizzying peaks draw visitors from around the world. With exceptional hiking and sightseeing, the park offers a unique glimpse of Canada’s natural wonders, from the secrets of ancient ocean life to the power of ice and water.

    I would love to see additional hikes developed at the west end of Yoho. Are there any plans to pursue this?

    Suzanne Gaultier asked over 2 years ago

    There are no immediate plans for new hiking trails in the west end of the park. However, we are interested in receiving input like this from Canadians on their interests and perspectives regarding the management of Yoho National Park. This comment has been recorded. It will be considered in the development of the draft park management plan.

    Thanks!
