The Wildland Park dataset is comprised of all the polygons that represent to preserve and protect natural heritage and provide opportunities for backcountry recreation in Alberta.
The purpose of this feature class is to show areas that are National Parks (NPs) and National Park Reserves (NPRs). Parks Canada manages more than 43 NPs. (Seehttp://www.pc.gc.ca/progs/np-pn/recherche-search_e.asp?p=1) for a list of PCA administered parks.

Ecosystems present ecological integrity when their native species and communities, landscapes and functions are intact and likely to persist. The ecological integrity of national parks is assessed by monitoring major park ecosystems, such as forest, freshwater and wetlands. It is a key measure of the condition of our national parks. The Ecological integrity of national parks indicator summarizes the state (good, fair, poor) and trend (improving, stable, declining) of ecosystems within national parks.

Parks Canada’s long-term goal is to establish at least one national park in each of Canada’s terrestrial regions. The system, which is 77 percent complete, represents the diversity of natural regions and landscapes in Canada. Forty-six national parks represent 30 of Canada’s 39 terrestrial regions, and protect approximately 328,198 square kilometres of Canada’s lands.
The purpose of this dataset is to identify the 39 terrestrial regions of Canada including whether or not they are presently represented by a national park.

Wapusk National Park is a sub-Arctic protected area covered with snow for over half of the year. Snowpack characteristics can provide important clues to impacts of climate change and park ecological integrity. Snow cover duration and characteristics affect soil and plant and animal components of the ecosystem. Current predictions for Wapusk are that with warming temperatures, snow in the Hudson Bay region will increase in amount but will stay for a shorter duration.
