On behalf of the people of Canada, Parks Canada Agency protects and presents nationally significant examples of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage, and fosters public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment in ways that ensure the ecological and commemorative integrity of these places for present and future generations.
Commitment to Diversity
Canada’s national parks, historic sites and marine conservation areas belong to all Canadians – team members, Indigenous peoples, stakeholders, visitors and the public. Parks Canada’s mandate is to protect and present nationally significant examples of Canada's natural and cultural heritage for the benefit of all Canadians. This foundational commitment to serve the benefit of all Canadians is fundamental to every dimension of Parks Canada’s work and underpins an Agency-wide aim to embrace diversity and inclusion, remove barriers, and facilitate greater participation by Canadians in the conservation and enjoyment of Canada’s national heritage places.
For Parks Canada, removing barriers, fostering participation, and embracing diversity are fundamental to the fulfillment of the Agency’s mandate and must play an important role in all aspects of the Agency’s work. This includes a harassment and discrimination-free workplace for its team members.
