Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Current lease renewal practices of Parks Canada are the source of much concern in Banff National Park;
  • Parks Canada failed to give any consideration to the comments received during the consultation process from primary stakeholders involved with the Sunshine Village site guidelines;
  • Parks Canada has created a situation that has forced the acceptance of new site guidelines for Sunshine Village without ample opportunity for the leaseholder to respond;
  • Should these lease renewal practices continue it will cause a chilling effect on leasehold improvements during the latter half of lease terms causing a negative economic impact on the Bow Valley Region; and
  • This could also potentially affect the quality of experiences for visitors to our National Parks.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to revisit the lease renewal provisions for leaseholds in our National Parks to ensure greater certainty for tourism operators so that they can continue to offer world-class visitor experiences to National Park visitors.
