Proposal Summary
Thank you for your interest in the bison reintroduction to Banff National Park. We receive
numerous proposals for media projects related to the return of bison to Banff National Park. The
following questionnaire will help us understand the goals of your project, the scope of your
proposed work and determine, if any, the level of Parks Canada involvement for your proposal.
Please note that our review process is rigorous to determine the best alignment with internal
goals for the reintroduction and not all projects will receive Parks Canada support.

requests must be approved through the standard process.
 This process does not preclude film permit application requirements.
