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.
The National Park dataset is comprised of all the polygons that represent areas set aside for recreation, under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government (Parks Canada) in Alberta.
The National Parks and National Park Reserves of Canada Legislative Boundaries web service includes the following lands: 1) National Parks of Canada as defined in Schedule 1 of the Canada National Parks Act, 2) National Park Reserves of Canada as defined in Schedule 2 of the Canada National Parks Act, 3) Rouge National Urban Park as defined in the Rouge National Urban Park Act and 4) Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park as defined in the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park Act.The Data available for download is the former National Framework Canada Lands Administrative Boundaries Level 1 product. There are some attribute differences between the data available for download and the web service; however both contain the same underlying data. Please refer to the Supporting Documents for additional information on the National Framework Canada Lands Administrative Boundaries Level 1 dataset.
The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The indicator summarizes the status and trends of ecosystems within national parks. Each ecological integrity indicator consists of a rating (good, fair, poor) and a trend (improving, stable, declining), based on monitoring results and knowledge of ecological systems. The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) reports on the ecological integrity of national parks as an indicator of the condition of Canada's protected areas.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Ecological integrity of national parks indicator summarizes the status and trends of ecosystems within national parks. This indicator supports the measurement of progress towards the long-term goal of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy 2016–2019: Lands and forests support biodiversity and provide a variety of ecosystem services for generations to come. As of March 2016, the condition of 90% of park ecological integrity indicators was maintained or improved from 2011.
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.
