Canmore, Alberta

The Forum Program Brochure has just been released! See details on our keynote speakers, 25 breakout sessions, trade show, NGO Showcase and more! Online registration is now open and the earl bird registration is available until February 28th.

Building off the momentum from the 2018 Canadian Parks Summit and the 2017 Canadian Parks Conference the Forum theme of Collaboration for Change is inspired by the incredible diversity of parks, landscapes and open spaces in this country and looks to gather key partners, educators, students, thinkers, and decision makers to develop ideas and forge connections. 

We are excited to have Regional Meeting status with the World Urban Parks and have their Chair, Gil Penalosa as our Opening Keynote Speaker. We are also excited to have David Vela, the Superintendent of Grand Teton National Park as the Closing Speaker to bring his thoughts on the important role we all play in parks.
