The negotiations by HPAC/ACVL with Parks Canada are continuing.
Will Gadd and Margit Nance were recently joined by Brandon Hopkins to make up the national negotiating team with Parks Canada. This continues to be a work in progress as more parks are brought online.
Each national park that has granted permission to our sport to fly, puts up a special
page for hang gliding and paragliding on their website.
Yoho National Park: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/bc/yoho/activ/parapente-paragliding
Kootenay National Park: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/bc/kootenay/activ/parapente-paragliding
The following National Parks are still in active negotiation. Please do not fly there until there is formal notification from HPAC/ACVL, signifying approval from the Park Administration. Premature flying could very negatively affect the negotiations.
Banff National Park: in negotiation
Revelstoke National Park: in negotiation, under the leadership of Scott Hansen and Samantha Wex.
Glacier National Park: in negotiation, under the leadership of Scott Hansen and Samantha Wex.
