Inclusion & Accessibility

Everyone Belongs Outside! Alberta's parks are important to our quality of life and we are committed to making parks more accessible and inclusive so that everyone benefits from outdoor recreation and spending time in nature. A priority of the Plan for Parks is to implement a province-wide inclusion plan to enhance visitor experiences. Everyone Belongs Outside: Alberta Parks Inclusion Plan was released in July 2014 in response.

Push to Open Nature 

The Push to Open Nature Initiative breaks down physical and mental barriers to nature by improving accessibility and promoting inclusion of all abilities through adaptive recreation events and partners.

Nature as a Second Language

The Nature as a Second Language Initiative removes language barriers and introduces new Canadians and newcomers to outdoor recreation and to provincial parks. Guidebooks are available in several languages.
