EN:The Canadian Protected and Conserved Areas Database (CPCAD) contains the most up-to-date spatial and attribute data on marine and terrestrial protected and other conserved areas in Canada. It is compiled and managed by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), in collaboration with federal, provincial and territorial jurisdictions. It contains combined data from all these Canadian jurisdictions. The CPCAD data providers are jurisdictions at the federal, provincial and territorial level that have mechanisms in place to control access and activities on terrestrial or marine areas, in order to protect various elements of biodiversity. It is used by a wide range of organizations, including governments, ENGOs, academia, land managers, industry, and the public. CPCAD supports many uses including Canadas national reporting on protected areas, Canadas international reporting on protected areas as a result of Canadas commitments under the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, and Canadas protected areas program by providing baseline information.

Les fournisseurs de donnes de la BDCAPC sont des administrations fdrales, provinciales et territoriales qui ont mis en place des mcanismes qui leur permettent de contrler laccs aux aires terrestres ou marines et les activits qui sy droulent afin de protger divers lments de la biodiversit. Elle est utilise par un large ventail dorganisations, incluant les gouvernements, les organisations non gouvernementales caractre environnemental (ONGE), les gestionnaires de territoire, lindustrie et le public.
