Canada's Policy for National Marine Parksby Claude Mondor, Environment Canada - Parks, Ottawa, Ont, Canada,
Abstract: The paper reviews some of the unique characteristics of marine ecosystems that demand management considerations distinct from those applied to terrestrial ones. The second part presents a brief outline of the legal framework which presently governs the creation of national marine parks in Canada. The third part illustrates how the national marine parks policy has taken these two parameters into account. The paper concludes with a caution that although it may be expedient to adapt certain aspects of the Canadian policy, each individual jurisdiction has its own political, legal and institutional contexts which may require different answers.
