Parks Canada Workshop

On May 5 and 6 of 2006, there were collaborative discussions between Parks Canada, Geocachers and Non-Government Organizations (NGO's) in Gatineau, Quebec. The purpose of the workshop was to jointly create policy recommendations for Parks Canada management at their invitation. It was a positive experience for all participants involved. This was step two of five in the second phase in a process that started May 2005 to develop a geocaching policy. An anticipated implementation date for the policy is Spring 2007. Until a final policy is in place, the interim policy remains in effect. We are optimistic that some form of physical geocaching will exist in Parks Canada in the future. A more in depth summary of details will follow.
