ADVOCACY
Parks for All
recognizes the
importance of being
part of the solution
to climate change,
resilience and
environmental justice.
Renewing the Importance
of Parks to Canadians
By Cathy Jo (CJ) Noble and Michael Cleland
C
anadians have a longstanding love for their parks and consider
them to be among the most important public assets provided by
government. The public's increased appreciation for parks during
the pandemic stimulated support for their renewal (refreshing
existing parks and creating new ones) and addressing the complexity of
managing visitor volumes and user conflicts.
In Canada, the compass for the
parks sector continues to be Parks for
All - the first joint action plan for
national, provincial, territorial, municipal
and Indigenous park communities.
Parks for All is a model of
collaboration within the parks community
(tinyurl.com/wbc3wysy).
Utilizing Parks for All as its foundation,
the Canadian Parks and
Recreation Association (CPRA)
is committed to supporting our
park system through a number of
efforts.

a multi-phase

for the park and recreation sector

initative was an evidence-based
examination of the impacts of
COVID-19 that highlights the needs
of the sector to build back better.
Reimagining Mandates
Canada formally recognizes ade|

quate housing as a fundamental human
right - thus, people living within
parks have the right to call them
their home. In Canada, we adopt
a " person first " approach when addressing
encampments in parks.
While encampments in parks have
long been a presence in Canada,
COVID-19 exacerbated the situation,
and some of our urban parks began
to provide social services and
amenities for unhoused residents,
including showers, food, water,
heated tents, mental health services,
relocation to temporary housing,
overdose prevention sites, job search
aids, and treatment for individuals
suffering from addiction. CPRA's
webinar explores this issue (tinyurl.

Reconciliation
The Indigenous voice is a key
pillar of Parks for All. The action
plan deliberately recognizes the
colonialism presence in Canadian
parks
and
calls
