“Parks Canada is pleased to provide to the public the Draft Action Plan for the Wood Buffalo National Park World Heritage Site for your review and comment.

A public comment period on the Draft Action Plan will be held from November 19 to December 10, 2018, for a period of 3 weeks.  Parks Canada anticipates that the Draft Action Plan will be available on the website of Wood Buffalo National Park (https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/nt/woodbuffalo/info/SEA_EES/action) and also through the Consulting with Canadians website early next week.

To develop the Draft Action Plan, Parks Canada has been leading a collaboration with a Federal-Provincial-Territorial Coordinating Committee (https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/nt/woodbuffalo/info/SEA_EES/action/FPT) and with Indigenous partners of Wood Buffalo National Park. Over the past year, development of this draft Action Plan has included engagement with Indigenous groups, on-going collaboration through working groups, and has been informed by existing provincial and territorial government processes where relevant.

As described on the Wood Buffalo National Park website, the draft Action Plan is developed around several thematic areas and uses existing processes led by the relevant levels of government where appropriate. As such, your organization may have opportunities to engage with relevant government leads through related initiatives, and/or through this public comment period coordinated by Parks Canada.

Parks Canada is pleased to provide an opportunity for your review of this draft Action Plan and looks forward to receiving any comments you may have.”

Please submit your comments on the Draft Action Plan by December 10, 2018 to
