CPAWS envisages a healthy ecosphere where people experience and respect natural
ecosystems. We will achieve this by (a) protecting Canada’s wild ecosystems in parks,
wilderness and similar natural areas, preserving the full diversity of habitats and their
species; (b) promoting awareness and understanding of ecological principles and the
inherent values of wilderness through education, appreciation and experience; (c)
encouraging individual action to accomplish these goals; and (d) working cooperatively
with government, First Nations, business, other organizations and
individuals in a consensus-seeking manner, wherever possible.
