We are writing to invite you to participate in public consultations for the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve’s draft management plan. From today until June 9, 2013, we encourage you to obtain a copy of the draft plan and to submit your comments and suggestions. This can be done via our website at http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/bc/gulf/plan.aspx, by e-mail at email@example.com or by telephone at 604-654-4000.
We also welcome you to provide your thoughts in person at one of the following public meetings being held in May:
- Saturna Island Recreation & Cultural Centre, Saturday, May 11, 11 am—2 pm
- Sidney—Mary Winspear Centre, 2243 Beacon Ave., Thursday, May 23, 7—10 pm
- Mayne Island Agricultural Hall, Saturday, May 25, 12 —3 pm
- Pender Island Community Hall, Sunday, May 26, 11 am—2 pm
These meetings will begin with a short presentation followed by a question and answer period and an opportunity for discussion with park reserve staff.
Public consultation on the development of management plans is required by Canada’s National Parks Act. However, we view this as an important opportunity for ongoing dialogue with you, to ensure that the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve remains a real and inspiring part of the Canadian landscape.
We would like to thank you for your on-going interest in and support for the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and welcome you to share this information with others in your professional and personal networks.
We look forward to hearing from you.
The Management Planning Team,
Gulf Islands National Park Reserve
