Oceans Report 2015: Dare to be Deep: Are Canada’s Marine Protected Areas Really ‘Protected’? - June 2015

The question we pose in this report is ‘how well do Canada’s marine protected areas actually protect ocean ecosystems from industrial activities?’ This seems like a fairly straightforward question, yet it turned out to be much more difficult to answer than we expected, and the information we uncovered is worrying.

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.

Oceans Report: Dare to be Deep: Charting Canada’s Course to 2020 - 2014

The ocean supports a tremendous diversity of life from coastal areas to the deep sea, and contains 99% of the space available for life on Earth. From plankton to whales, marine species live in a delicate balance that can easily be disturbed by human activities, and cause a domino effect on species half-way around the world.

The State of Canada’s Parks 2013 - 2013

Canada’s annual Parks Day takes place on July 20, 2013. Since 2008, CPAWS has issued an annual report reviewing how well Canada has done over the past year in both creating parks and  protecting these natural treasures for the benefit of current and future generations of Canadians. 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.
