Parks Canada announces free admission for youth 17 and under


Does your New Years resolution involve going outside?

Parks-CanadaYou’re in luck! Starting January 1, 2018, admission to Parks Canada sites is free for youth 17 and under.

This includes admission to all national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas operated by Parks Canada. You can view a full list of Parks Canada sites HERE.

The new offer serves as an extensions of the government’s Canada 150 initiative, which waived admission fees to all Parks Canada sites throughout 2017.

While youth will enjoy free admission beginning in 2018, Parks Canada is returning to fee-based admission for adults and seniors to national parks, historic sites and marine conservation areas, including lockage at historic canals. Canadians are encouraged to order their Parks Canada Discovery Passes online. Discovery Passes are also available at Parks Canada entry gates and visitor centres.
