A park management statement is required for Chapleau-Nemegosenda Rivers Provincial Park to replace the 2006 Interim Management Statement direction for the protection and management of the park. Chapleau-Nemegosenda Rivers Provincial Park is a 17,732 hectare waterway class park located approximately 15 kilometres northeast of the town of Chapleau. The park was established in 1973 to protect the traditional and recreational canoe-route, as well as associated cultural and natural heritage values.
The preliminary management statement was developed recognizing the significance of Chapleau-Nemegosenda Rivers Provincial Park’s cultural, recreational, and natural heritage within Ontario’s protected area system, and will ensure that the relationship of the park within the larger landscape is properly considered. The preliminary management statement describes park zoning that will be used to indicate, for example, authorized access areas for the park and to protect historical and wilderness values. It also outlines implementation priorities for the park. The preliminary management statement uses an adaptive approach, looking forward for a 20-year period, with adjustment as necessary.
