The parks and protected areas community has a long history of collaboration: the Canadian Parks Council (CPC) was formed in 1962 as a space for federal, provincial, and territorial park agency leaders to share ideas and innovate together. CPPCL is a platform to further this culture of sharing and expand it to the valued non-profit, Indigenous, academic, and community partners who do leading work in area-based conservation.
Shared resources are publicly accessible and searchable.
CPPCL hosts a free 60-minute webinar on the first Thursday of every month. Overall themes range from leadership to management, conservation to connection. We also welcome suggestions for topics and are always open to co-host webinars with partners in the Canadian parks and protected areas community.
Resources are curated into a series of resource pages and sorted into themes of conserve, connect, manage, lead, and collaborate in reflection of Parks for All: An Action Planner for Canada’s Parks Community.
