Pimachiowin Aki World Heritage Site Management Plan

Pimachiowin Aki, the land that gives life, is the ancestral home of the Anishinaabeg, covering 33,400 square kilometres of land and water on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.

In 2010, HTFC was retained by the Pimachiowin Aki Corporation to prepare the management plan for the proposed Pimachiowin Aki World Heritage Site. Pimachiowin Aki is Canada’s first UNESCO world heritage site nomination based on both natural and cultural criteria. The plan brings together and applies integrated ecological and cultural research, First Nations’ land use plans and customary stewardship, provincial government policy and plans, and World Heritage guidelines.

HTFC was also contracted by the Pimachiowin Aki Corporation to maintain and manage the Corporation’s Geographic Information System during the nomination process.
