Who will take care of the park? Canada, or USA?


The details on the management of the park would be established through the Parks Canada Feasibility study process, in consultation with local stakeholders. As the park would be in Canada, it would fall under the jurisdiction of the Canadian Federal Government through Parks Canada.

However, the Flathead Park would likely be added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Peace Park and there would be much collaboration with the National Parks Service in the US on the co-management of the park.

Parks Canada would also likely base its management out of the existing Waterton National Park headquarters as the Flathead is adjacent to those facilities.
