The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Canada's conserved areas indicators report the amount and proportion of Canada's terrestrial (land and freshwater) and marine area that is conserved. This includes areas recognized under the international definitions of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures. Land and/or water access and use within protected areas are controlled primarily for the purpose of conserving biodiversity, regardless of proprietary designation (for example, park, conservation area or wildlife reserve).

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The protected areas indicators report the amount and proportion of Canada's terrestrial (land and freshwater) and marine area that is recognized under the international definition of a protected area as "a clearly defined geographical space, recognised, dedicated and managed, through legal or other effective means, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values." Land and/or water access, use and activities within the protected area are controlled, primarily for the purpose of conserving biodiversity, regardless of proprietary designation (for example, park, conservation area or wildlife reserve). The amount of area protected is a measure of human response to the loss of biodiversity and natural habitat.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators CESI program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Protected Areas indicators report the amount and proportion of Canada's land and freshwater and marine area that is recognized as protected under the international definition of a protected area as "a clearly defined geographical space, recognised, dedicated and managed, through legal or other effective means, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values". Land and/or water access, use and activities are restricted, permanently or temporarily, primarily for the purpose of conserving biodiversity and ecosystem function, regardless of proprietary designation e.g., park, conservation area, wildlife reserve . Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports.

Environment Canada's protected areas are prescribed a legal framework to facilitate the protection of wildlife and their habitat. Established according to biological criteria, these protected areas are primarily created for the purpose of conservation. Management activities may include interventions such as habitat restoration and investigative research projects on species and habitat. By conserving these habitats, Environment Canada's protected areas help ensure that wildlife species do not become at risk, thereby preserving biodiversity at regional, national and even international scales.
