Let’s Talk Fundy National Park!
Fundy National Park
Public consultation on Fundy National Park’s management plan is an opportunity for everyone to share their thoughts and ideas about the future management of this treasured place.
What’s a Management Plan?Management plans provide a long-term vision, key strategies and objectives that guide the management of a national park over a 10-year period. A management plan is an important document in ensuring that Parks Canada delivers on its commitments to Canadians. Once complete, the Fundy National Park management plan will be tabled in Parliament and signed by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada.
What does Fundy National Park mean to you?Management plans are developed through extensive involvement and input from various people and organizations, including Indigenous partners and other key stakeholders, local communities and visitors. Based on its first round of consultation, Fundy National Park has developed a draft management plan and is looking for your feedback on the Park’s proposed direction. Whether you have already visited Fundy National Park or not, your input matters!

About Fundy National Park…
Nestled in the southern limits of Albert County, New Brunswick and bordered on the south by the Chignecto Bay in the Upper Bay of Fundy, Fundy National Park falls within traditional Mi’gmaq territory called Sikniktewag (“drainage area”). Parks Canada acknowledges the lands upon which we gather in New Brunswick to be the unceded territories of the Mi’gmaq, Wolastoqey and Peskotomuhkati Nations.
Established in 1948, Fundy National Park protects 206 km2 of the Fundy Coastal eco-region which includes sheltered coves, salt marshes, estuaries and rugged cliffs that rise 150 metres from the bay. The Park also includes the Southern Uplands eco-region, which is characterized by a rolling, hilly plateau cut by deep valleys and cascading rivers. Within the Southern Uplands eco-region, the topography reaches over 400 metres with the Upper Salmon River, Point Wolfe River and Goose River carving steep-sided ravines down to the coast.
The area surrounding Fundy National Park is sparsely populated, with the community of Alma, situated at the southeastern edge of the Park, being the only adjacent settlement. The major population centres of the region include Saint John, Fredericton, Sussex and Moncton.
Highway 114 bisects the Park for 21 km, extending from Wolfe Lake in the northwest to Alma in the southeast, and provides a transportation link to the Trans-Canada Highway. Fundy National Park receives over 350,000 visitors annually.
