Legal and survey work is needed to legally protect each site in Our Parks and Protected Areas: A Plan for Nova Scotia. Some sites require additional planning, including public input in some cases. Any upcoming Sharing and Information Sessions will be listed below. As this work is completed, sites from the plan will be submitted to Executive Council for designation and then listed in the table below. You can also check our online map, to see the location of pending, newly designated and existing parks and protected areas.
