Management Planning

Parks Canada is updating the management plan for Elk Island National Park. Learn more about the plan review process and opportunities for Indigenous and public involvement.

What is a management plan?

A management plan is a public document that identifies the park management priorities over the next ten years. The plan sets out a long term vision, and sets objectives for achieving the vision.

The management plan includes topics such as: protecting natural and cultural resources, ensuring Indigenous participation in park management, facilitating visitor experiences and working with park neighbours.


Consultation with Indigenous peoples and the Canadian public is a requirement in the development of National Park management plans. The perspectives of Canadians can help make the plan stronger and more relevant. All comments received during the development of the new plan will be considered.

An initial phase of consultation occurred in 2021 through to 2022 with park stakeholders and Indigenous partners. This input continues to be considered as the draft plan is being finalized.
