Proposal to Renew Amisk Park Reserve Designation

Amisk Park Reserve is located approximately 90 kilometres north of Thompson and straddles the traditional territories of Nisichawayasihk, Tataskweyak, and O-Pipon-Na-Piwin Cree Nations. The park reserve is approximately 198,000 hectares in size, and is the only protected area located within the Churchill River Uplands Ecoregion. It provides undisturbed habitat for moose, black bear, wolves, and woodland caribou (which are listed as a threatened species provincially and federally), as well as a number of bird species.

Amisk has been a park reserve since 1997, with its current designation expiring on May 31, 2023. The park reserve designation has been renewed several times to allow for continuing discussions on the future of these lands.

The purpose of this engagement process is to seek public comments regarding the proposal to renew Amisk Park Reserve for an additional five-year term. Renewal of the park reserve will continue the area's protected areas designation while discussions continue towards the potential permanent designation of the site.

We want to hear from you. Please participate in this survey to provide your opinion on the proposal to renew the park reserve.
