Losing Ground: Time to Embrace the True Value of Parks - July 2014

Canada’s annual Parks Day takes place on July 19th, 2014. Since 2008 CPAWS has issued an annual report reviewing how well Canada has done over the past year in both creating new parks and protecting our existing parks for the benefit of current and future generations of Canadians. Over the years the review has ranged from celebrating significant progress on new parks to noting a slowdown in progress and highlighting
emerging problems. Unfortunately, for the third year in a row, while there were some good news stories, our overall conclusion is that Canada continues to lose ground in creating and protecting our cherished parks.

This year’s report concludes that in the past twelve months, the story of how Canada’s parks are faring has been mixed. Overall, our assessment is that progress on creating and protecting Canada’s parks has taken one step forward and two steps back.
