Pascale Salah
National Urban Park Project Manager, Parks Canada @Parks Canada

Pascale has spent much of the past 15 years dedicated to thinking about how we can make our parks more accessible and welcoming to all. Her work is motivated in part by her lived experience coming from an immigrant family in Halifax and as a person living with Multiple Sclerosis.

Dismantling Barriers to Nature and Parks


Join Parks Canada in a panel discussion on improving the accessibility and inclusivity of urban parks for people of all ages, abilities and identities. In this session, we will hear from a range of panellists whose voices are often underrepresented in park planning and decision-making. Panellists will explore potential strategies within policy, planning and programming that address barriers to accessing nature in urban environments.
