Government of Canada moves closer to creating national park In East Arm of Great Slave Lake

Parks Canada – Today, the Government of Canada moved closer towards establishing a national park reserve on the East Arm of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories as the Honourable Jim Prentice, Canada’s Environment Minister and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, signed a Framework Agreement with the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation. The framework agreement commits the parties to negotiate a park establishment agreement and is an essential step to enable the Minister to recommend to Parliament the creation of this national park reserve. “This milestone agreement brings us substantially closer to creating this national park, and permanently protecting one of Canada’s most precious northern landscapes for future generations,” said Minister Prentice. “In this special year where we’re celebrating the 125th anniversary of Banff National Park, I am also pleased to announce that with the signing of this Framework Agreement with the Łutsel K’e Dene, Parks Canada has adopted their preferred name for the area ― Thaidene Nene ― to identify this national park reserve.”
