Park System Leadership

Welcome to the Park System Leadership course site. This blended online and face-to-face course is offered by the Canadian Parks Council for organizations responsible for parks and protected areas.

Since 2005, this course has pioneered a focus on leadership and learning for complex environments, and for the development of leaders in all levels and branches of each organization.

The 2016 Park System Leadership course began part-time online in late August and the face-to-face portion was offered in Alberta October 16-23.  We had participants from national, provincial and regional park organizations and the Nature Conservancy of Canada.  Our learning was enriched through collaborations with Mount Royal University, the Stoney Nakoda nation and Blood/Kanai members.

There will be no course offering during 2017, but the Canadian Parks Council is exploring learning and development priorities for future years.
