A National Park for Northern BC
A National Park for Northern BC
Parks Canada's objective is to represent each of Canada's 39 natural regions with at least one national park. One of the few remaining regions that remains unrepresented in the national park system is the "Northern Interior Plateaux and Mountains", a region that stretches from the southern Yukon into the northern interior of B.C. The establishment of a well-placed, large scale national park in northern B.C. provides an opportunity to ensure the highest form of ecological protection as well as significant economic opportunities for First Nations communities.

There is a quiet but amazing wilderness in the Cassiar and Skeena Mountains in northern B.C. Centered roughly around the headwaters of the Finlay River, it sits nestled immediately south of sprawling Spatsizi and the other amazing “Stikine Country Parks” and just off the southwest flank of the huge Muskwa-Kechika Management Area.

The Muskwa-Kechika is B.C.’s largest “managed” landscape – it’s a huge area of the northern Rockies stretching 6.4 million hectares. As a managed wilderness, all industry in the M-K must meet a higher standard of environmental sensitivity than in the rest of British Columbia. The M-K contains a constellation of parks and protected areas but the goal is to protect the environmental health of entire region.
