We are planning to expand Kitaskino Nuwenëné Wildland Provincial Park. The expansion would:
- support Indigenous peoples’ traditional activities, including the exercise of treaty rights
- add to the largest contiguous area of protected boreal land in the world
- provide habitat protection for caribou, bison and other wildlife
- support collaboration between Indigenous communities, government and industry
- align with current intent of the land use and allow activities such as hiking, hunting, trapping and fishing, and backcountry camping
The original area was established as a wildland provincial park in March 2019 and is located south of Wood Buffalo National Park, and adjacent to the Birch River and Richardson Wildland Provincial Parks. The proposed expansion would see 143,800 hectares added to an existing 161,880 hectare wildland provincial park.
Survey open from February 11 to March 15, 2021
