What we do
The Interpretive Guides Association (formally Mountain Parks Heritage Interpretation Association) is a professional body representing interpretive guides who connect people to Canada’s natural and cultural areas.
We believe that meaningful and memorable experiences can be fostered with professionally accredited interpreters. These interpreters weave the local natural and cultural history into engaging stories that help people feel a personal connection to the landscapes and cultures they are immersed in.
Like any professionals, interpreters need professional representation, accreditation and on-going opportunities for learning and discovery. The Interpretive Guides Association provides services that support guides and ensure visitors that go out with them have enjoyable, safe and memorable experiences.
