Parks Canada To Court Private Sector

In response to a Parks Canada poll that asked the public about support for Parks Canada partnerships with the private sector, 80% of respondents were open to the idea. Now it appears that Parks Canada is preparing to increase the role that corporate sponsors play in PC national parks and historic sites.

“This isn’t about private companies having their big logos shooting up in front of the big gate at Banff or having a large corporate logo sitting over Louisbourg,” Andrew Campbell of Parks Canada told the Toronto Sun.

While some critics have shown increased opposition to the privatization of the parks, Parks Canada is already partnering with private companies for certain services.
