Parks Canada Conservation Standards Modules

Parks Canada developed these modules to provide staff accessible, self-paced training materials for Steps 1 (Assess) and 2 (Plan) of the Conservation Standards, as well as a set of reference materials. The training modules are tailored to a Canadian context and incorporate some elements of Healthy Country Planning.

There are 9 modules in total. Module 0 provides an overview of all 5 steps of the process. Modules 1-7 cover each sub-step in Steps 1 and 2. Module 8 provides an overview of Steps 3-5. Module 10 is a training module on assessing existing evidence within the Conservation Standards.

Modules and associated speaking notes are available in PowerPoint and PDF. If using the PowerPoint files, view in slideshow mode once downloaded.

Access the modules in English or French via Parks Canada’s Google Drive.
