BC Parks Conservation Policy

The BC Parks Conservation Policy document first released in September 1997 was updated and implemented in September 2014. This document provides the current policy statements that direct the day-to-day and long-term actions under which BC Parks, Ministry of Environment manages natural and cultural values within British Columbia’s system of protected areas. Its purpose is to provide a comprehensive guide for BC Parks’ managers, and further, a public measure that ensures provincially consistent standards are followed and that field activities reflect the overall goals and objectives of BC Parks and the province.
