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. With a background as a social scientist focusing on visitor experience at national heritage places, Pascale is now a National Urban Park Project Manager. Her work is inspired by connections between nature and culture, people and planet.

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.
