Abstract:

The Parks Canada Agency (PCA) manages nine through waterways (historic canals), which collectively account for about 6% of the Agency's annual spending and represent approximately 10% of the estimated $10.5B in replacement value of the Agency's asset portfolio. Operation of these waterways contributes to the Agency's mandate objectives of heritage resource conservation and visitor experience. As well, it provides a number of public benefits outside the Agency's core mandate, including management of water levels and/or parts of watersheds to prevent flooding or other adverse consequences related to public safety and protection of property, providing a water source for municipalities, providing municipal infrastructure (e.g. bridges that span waterways and link communities), and providing surplus water for hydro power generation. Failure to adequately manage the public safety risks of the through waterways could have major consequences with respect to loss of life, personal injury, and large socio-economic impacts on populations and infrastructure in close proximity to the waterways. Given the risks inherent in waterway operations, the through waterway management sub-activity of the Program Activity Architecture (PAA) (i.e., the public benefits of waterway operations) was identified as a high priority for evaluation in the 2010-2011 Parks Canada Evaluation Plan.
