    Description

    Banff National Park, the flagship of the Canadian national park system, has become the focus of debate over park use versus protected area conservation. In response to the debate, the Minister of Canadian Heritage commissioned an independent review. The resulting Banff-Bow Valley Study report and Banff National Park Management Plan are landmark documents. The work was a blend of science and public policy review and an innovative approach to public involvement. This paper summarizes the Banff-Bow Valley Study, Parks Canada response and the influence of the overall process on Parks Canada policy and program.
