Improvement District No. 12 (Jasper National Park),[2] or Improvement District No. 12,[4] is an improvement district in Alberta, Canada. Located within Jasper National Park in Alberta's Rockies, the improvement district is the municipality that provides local government for the portion of the park outside the Municipality of Jasper.


Improvement District (I.D.) No. 12 was originally formed as I.D. No. 80 on April 1, 1945 through the amalgamation of I.D. Nos. 379, 438, 439, 469, 499, 500, and 530, as well as portions of I.D.

A second improvement district, Jasper Improvement District, was separated from I.D. No. 12 on August 31, 1995.[2] Jasper Improvement District subsequently became a specialized municipality named the Municipality of Jasper on July 20, 2001.[5]
