Protected Areas Indicators – Protected areas, Canada The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Protected Areas indicators report the amount and proportion of Canada's terrestrial and marine area that is recognized under the international definition of a protected area as "a clearly defined geographical space, recognised, dedicated and managed, through legal or other effective means, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values". Land and/or water access, use, and activities within the protected area are restricted, permanently or temporarily, primarily for the purpose of conserving biodiversity and ecosystem function, regardless of proprietary designation (for example, park, conservation area, or wildlife reserve). Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See supplementary documentation for data sources and details on how those data were collected and how the indicator was calculated. 2016-10-14 2018-08-29 Environment and Climate Change Canada Nathalie.Trudeau@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentSociety and CultureScience and TechnologyNature and BiodiversityNature and Biodiversity - HabitatGeographic FeatureObservation/MeasurementOversee and Manage Site ConditionsDesignate and Manage Priority HabitatNational (CA)EcosystemsEnvironmental protectionEnvironmental indicators Data table (XLS/CSV; 6.29 MB)CSV http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/CESIServices/DataService/10/en Data table (XLS/CSV; 6.89 MB)CSV http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/CESIServices/DataService/10/fr Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators – Interactive mapsHTML http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/default.asp?lang=En&n=130FFF78-1 Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators – Interactive mapsHTML http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/default.asp?lang=Fr&n=130FFF78-1 Data Sources and MethodsHTML http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/default.asp?lang=En&n=5FABE1CD-1 Data Sources and MethodsHTML http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/default.asp?lang=fr&n=5FABE1CD-1 Interactive indicator mapHTML http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/indicators-indicateurs/?lang=en&mapID=10 Interactive indicator mapHTML http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/indicators-indicateurs/?lang=fr&mapID=10 Protected areas, Canada, LargeESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/ArcGIS/rest/services/CESI_FGP_All_Layers/MapServer/4 Aires protégées, Canada, GrandESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/ArcGIS/rest/services/CESI_FGP_All_Layers/MapServer/3 Concentrations ambiantes de dioxyde d’azote aux stations de suivi, Canada (Layer)WMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/CESI_FGP_All_Layers/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=1&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Concentrations ambiantes de dioxyde d’azote aux stations de suivi, Canada (Layer)WMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/CESI_FGP_All_Layers/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=1&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
