The Government of Canada, in collaboration with the Canadian Parks Council and Mount Royal University’s Institute for Environmental Sustainability, recently announced the launch of the Pan-Canadian Parks and Protected Areas Research Network. The Network is made up of scientists, researchers, Indigenous knowledge holders, students, and parks and protected areas specialists and managers, who collectively will work towards building a shared understanding of the challenges of and potential solutions for our protected areas.
Over the next three years, the Network will engage through an online platform. It will develop and offer learning opportunities such as webinars, virtual summits, and online courses in knowledge exchange and sharing. These actions will help advance science, research and evidence-informed decision making to protect natural treasures in Canada.
