Pimachiowin Aki is a very large ecosystem and cultural landscape, which is the most complete and largest example of the North American boreal shield.

It encompasses part of the lands of four First Nations, and three provincial parks: Woodland Caribou and Atikaki Provincial Parks along with Eagle-Snowshoe Conservation Reserve. The Anishinaabe First Nations continue to use and live in this forested area.

Pimachiowin Aki means Land that gives life in Ojibwe, an indigenous language of Canada.
