Whitebark pine is considered a “keystone species” mountain national parks, as it plays several important ecological roles where it exists in subalpine environments. Its survival has been threatened by the combined effects of fire suppression, climate change, mountain pine beetle outbreaks and a disease known as white pine blister rust. In 2014, 495 whitebark pine seedlings were planted in and adjacent to old burn sites in Glacier National Park. The main goals of the monitoring program are to assess health, survivorship, and to note any sign of blister rust infection. In 2016, seedlings were planted at Mount Revelstoke as part …

The following standard is used to evaluate Parks Canada Agency’s goal to manage wildland fire and conduct prescribed fire activities to restore and maintain the ecological integrity of park lands. A 20% natural fire cycle is the set percentage that allows fire to play a role as a natural disturbance in ecosystems while being realistic and achievable considering physical and financial constraints, the variability in wildland fire regimes in MRGNP and the need to balance public safety. The 20% long term average was obtained by analysing the variation in area burned in national parks of different sizes, fire regimes and …

This measure tracks changes in presence and absence of three amphibian species at 43 potential breeding sites. Each site is visited twice (where possible), to estimate and account for detection probability the Western Toad (Bufo boreas), Columbia Spotted Frog (Rana luteiventris), and Long-toed salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum). Mount Revelstoke National Park will monitor these amphibian species using this protocol once every 3 years.

The Work-Sharing (WS) Program is an adjustment program through Employment Insurance (EI) involving employers, employees and Service Canada. It is designed to help employers and employees avoid layoffs when there is a temporary reduction in the normal level of business activity that is beyond the control of the employer.

Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has compiled data on various metrics related to WS applications and agreements. We have also archived statistics related to the WS special measures for employers affected by COVID-19.

Designed and assembled in Canada, Alouette-1 was the first satellite built by a nation other than the United States or the Soviet Union. It was constructed at a time when most satellites had a useful lifespan of a few months. Although Alouette-1 was as complex as any previously launched satellite, rapidly advancing technology and the extreme care exercised in all phases of Alouette-1’s development had led the Canadian builders to expect that their satellite would operate for at least 1 year. However, Alouette-1 operated for 10 years. In its first 3 months of operation, Alouette-1 produced some of the most …
