Parks, Protected Areas, Open Spaces and Public Places
March 8-11, 2017 Banff Centre Banff, Alberta, Canada

Conference Theme: “Parks for All”

The Conference will include six keynote presentations and over 45 breakout sessions, along with pre-conference workshops and tours. There will also be a corporate tradeshow, opportunities for celebration of Canada’s indigenous culture, outdoor activity sessions and fun socials. Registration will be capped at 400 delegates. French simultaneous translation services will be provided for the main plenary room and select sessions.

Building on the strategic directions and priorities of the 2016 Canadian Parks Summit, this opportunity for professional development, networking and storytelling recognizes the need for practical solutions in the midst of increasing complexity. The Parks for All- A Shared Vision for Canada’s Parks Community document will guide our conference and thrive to continue conversations with workshops on where parks are going. Early bird pricing is available up to January 31st. Please contact [email protected] with questions or for more information. I hope to see you in Banff in a few months’ time.
