World Heritage Nomination

What is happening?

Will the name of the park change because of World Heritage Site status?

What is the area to be designated?  Will it apply to private or lease land?

Will the legal status of lands change?

Will designation as a World Heritage Site lead to increased visitation and greater impacts?

How will Indigenous people be involved in the designation of Writing-on-Stone / Áísínai’pi?

How will the local community be involved?

When will a decision be made on the proposal?

Are there other UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Alberta?
