Work environment

Parks Canada Agency is a federal government agency responsible for the protection and presentation of Canada’s natural and cultural resources through a system of national parks, national marine conservation areas and national historic sites in all regions of Canada.

Parks Canada Agency’s Mandate: On behalf of the people of Canada, we protect and present nationally significant examples of Canada's natural and cultural heritage, and foster public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment in ways that ensure their ecological and commemorative integrity for present and future generations.

In the Nunavut Field Unit, Inuit and Parks Canada cooperatively manage five national parks, one national historic site and one national marine conservation area. They are:
• Auyuittuq National Park
• Sirmilik National Park
• Qausuittuq National Park
• Quttinirpaaq National Park
• Ukkusiksalik National Park
• Wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror National Historic Site
• Tallurutiup Imanga National Marine Conservation Area

Long before these areas received federal protection, Inuit lived, harvested and travelled these lands and waters. Many staff have connections to these places through their families and ancestors. To this day, harvesting and use by Inuit remain a protected right under the Nunavut Agreement. For further information on the organization, please visit the Parks Canada website.
