Working Together

Working together with community partners is key to successfully meeting Alberta Parks’ goals. Our partners gain unique opportunities to grow their businesses, participate in a variety of park experiences or to provide a valued perspective to current and future Alberta Parks planning. By collaborating with partners, Alberta Parks amplifies its ability to enhance visitor experiences, connect people to nature, and conserve our natural and cultural heritage.

Business & Partnership Opportunities

Development Opportunities

Private business can apply to operate in an Alberta Park. Private sector lessees can provide a variety of visitor services and recreational opportunities. Email inquiries to Heather.Lambert@gov.ab.ca.

Please Note:

  • Development opportunities are limited in provincial parks, so once a project has passed its internal review and stakeholder consultation, it will be publicly advertised, usually through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process.
  • An Environmental Impact Assessment and a Heritage Impact Review will be required.

Facility Operator

The Government of Alberta often enters into facility operating and service agreements for:

  • Operation and maintenance of provincially owned campgrounds.
  • Delivery of some maintenance services such as building cleaning and grass cutting.
