A new management plan is needed for the Rideau Canal, the last one was done in 2005. The purpose of the plan is to ensure the commemorative integrity of the Rideau Canal National Historic Site, guide appropriate public use, ensure the application of cultural resource management principles and practices in decision-making and conserve the natural values of the Canal.
Public consultations planned for 2017 were pushed back into 2018 and have now been delayed until 2019. A draft plan should (in theory) be available for public review in Summer 2019. Parks Canada has an end of 2019 deadline to get this done (has to be on the Minister's desk prior to March 2020). Details will be posted here when available.
