In the Greenbelt Master Plan (2013), the proposed land designations are a “classification” which assigns desired landscape character and uses to defined land areas across the Greenbelt. Areas are classified according to their desired role, whether to protect biodiversity, maintain agricultural resources, or accommodate permanent facilities.
Described in the Gatineau Park Master plan (2021), the land use designations are the authorized activities or uses in a given area. They support the implementation of the park’s vision and goals. They also ensure that interventions and activities are spatially and functionally consistent.
A single-tier municipality doesn't form part of an upper-tier municipality and assumes all municipal responsibilities set out under the Municipal Act and other Provincial legislation. A lower-tier municipality forms part of an upper-tier municipality. Municipal responsibilities set out under the Municipal Act and other Provincial legislation are split between the upper-tier and lower-tier municipalities.
An upper-tier municipality is made up of 2 or more lower-tier municipalities. Municipal responsibilities set out under the Municipal Act and other Provincial legislation are split between the upper-tier and lower-tier municipalities. A lower-tier municipality forms part of an upper-tier municipality. Municipal responsibilities set out under the Municipal Act and other Provincial legislation are split between the upper-tier and lower-tier municipalities.
In the Capital Urban Lands Plan (2015), Land designations identify the desired uses for federal urban lands in relation to the role they play for the Capital in a given location. Each land designation provides policy direction for an ensemble of sites that serve similar functions.
NOTE: Not for operational use. This dataset is the result of an analysis (Aug 2018) of many input layers and as such the accuracy, currency, and completeness of the dataset cannot be relied upon for operational or management decision making. * Land designations that contribute to conservation are spatially-defined areas established through legislation or purchased for the protection of nature and cultural values, the conservation of biological diversity and ecosystem services and the management of natural resources. Over 40 land designations were divided into three broad categories: - *Protected Lands includes all Parks & Protected Areas and Other Protected Lands with the primary purpose of the long-term conservation of nature and cultural values.
In 2016-17, DFO Maritimes Region undertook a Marine Protected Area (MPA) network analysis for the Scotian Shelf-Bay of Fundy Bioregion. The analysis considered available bioregional-scale ecological and human use data in an effort to identify a draft MPA network design that would protect biodiversity while minimizing any potential impacts on commercial fishing and other industries. The data layers used for the offshore component of the MPA network analysis are provided here. These layers are not presented in their original forms and were modified (e.g.
The AAFC Land Use Time Series is a culmination and curated meta-analysis of several high-quality spatial datasets produced between 1990 and 2021 using a variety of methods by teams of researchers as techniques and capabilities have evolved. The information from the input datasets was consolidated and embedded within each 30m x 30m pixel to create consolidated pixel histories, resulting in thousands of unique combinations of evidence ready for careful consideration. Informed by many sources of high-quality evidence and visual observation of imagery in Google Earth, we apply an incremental strategy to develop a coherent best current understanding of what has happened in each pixel through the time series.
