Defending Parks

Canada's national and provincial parks are home to pristine wilderness, roaring rivers, sparkling lakes, wild boreal forests, majestic grasslands and amazing wildlife. Our parks are also a public trust where people can walk, hike, swim, camp, birdwatch and connect with nature. We focus on safeguarding provincial and national parks from neglect and industrial development, while advocating for strong legislation to ensure proper management and preservation.

BC's Provincial Parks

People come from around the world to visit BC's provincial parks because they offer something in short supply in the rest of the world: a clean, natural and unspoiled environment. This makes BC both a desirable place to visit and a desirable place to live. BC's parks are an important part of BC's environmental legacy – a public trust where people can go to walk, hike, swim, camp, bird watch and reconnect with nature.

Manitoba's Provincial Parks

Manitoba’s provincial parks are home to remote sparkling lakes, clear rivers, sandy beaches and wild boreal forests. You can hike through natural grasslands in Spruce Woods, relax on the sand at Grand Beach, cross-country ski at Duck Mountain, spot rare orchids in Nopiming, or paddle down world-famous canoeing rivers in Atikaki.
