Hon. Jean Chretien (Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development):

1. In Banff and Jasper national parks public calls for tenders are made when new park lands are being offered for hotel and motel development by private enterprise. The tenderer making the most acceptable proposal is awarded a commercial lease. Proposals are assessed on the basis of the proposed annual ground rental rate and/or proposed concession fee based on a percentage of gross annual receipts from all sales and services; compatibility of architectural and landscaping designs to the motif of the area; number of units of accommodation to be developed; schedule of development to provide the number of units of accommodation proposed for the site; quality of service and rates to be charged to the public; quality of furnishings and equipment to be provided; demonstrated ability to finance, manage and operate the concession at the amount tendered.

If no acceptable proposals are received, or if the department is unable to negotiate acceptable terms with tenderers, the department may then negotiate with any interested

the opportunity to develop the land. In such cases the requirements of the tender call are used as the basis for negotiation.

2. Those tendering on visitor accommodation concessions must make a deposit in the form of an acceptable cheque, money order or draft made payable to the Receiver General of Canada in the amount specified in the call for tenders. Tenderers must show proof of financial capability to construct, equip, and operate the facilities.

3. Commercial leases are for periods of up to 42 years.

4. The department's requirements are defined and terms and conditions established. Then there is a public call for tenders by posting of notices in public buildings and by placing of advertisements in the major newspapers published within the region. Also, copies of the notice are sent to parties who have indicated an interest in such a development.

5. Leases for hotel or motel facilities have been awarded to the following parties between September, 1963 and September, 1968: (a) Jasper National Park; Jas-Day Investments Ltd; Tonquin Valley Motel Ltd. (b) Banff National Park; Mountaineer Motel Company Limited.
