Parks Canada has come a long way over the past 30 years in terms of working in a positive and respectful manner with Aboriginal peoples. This change has been driven in part by legal precedents, but more importantly by the desire of Parks Canada and Aboriginal peoples to work together toward common goals. Our system of national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas will only grow with the support of Aboriginal peoples, and a significant portion of the existing national park land base is in place due to their strong cooperation, support, and contribution.
