Management plan review

The public consultation period for the Vuntut National Park draft management plan ended September 11, 2023. We are reviewing the feedback provided for consideration in the development of the final plan.

What is a management plan?

A management plan is a forward-looking, results-based document that provides a vision of a site at its future best and the strategies for getting there. It is a broad and strategic document that identifies the desired outcome – through key goals, objectives, and targets – while providing flexibility to select the required actions over time, in response to evolving circumstances. Once finalized, this management plan will guide decisions and actions in protecting, presenting and operating Vuntut National Park over the next 10 years.

Planning for the future at Vuntut National Park

A management plan provides a vision and strategic direction for the future of a national park or historic site. It guides decision making to ensure that natural and cultural heritage is protected, and visitors can experience and enjoy these treasured places in a manner that supports their ongoing conservation.

Management plans are required for all national parks and must be reviewed every ten years. In cases where sites are cooperatively managed, such as Vuntut National Park, managing partners, including First Nation governments and the North Yukon Renewable Resources Council, play a lead role in developing and endorsing the plans.

Public consultation is an important part of the planning process, ensuring that Canadians have opportunities to provide meaningful input on how Parks Canada places are managed. Parks Canada is in the early stages of a plan review for Vuntut National Park and is committed to providing ongoing information about the process. Detailed newsletters and notification of public participation opportunities will follow as planning progresses.
