Park Passes for Expropriated Landowners
Parks Canada has a special access pass for people whose lands were expropriated during the creation of national parks or national historic sites and their descendants. This pass allows holders to enter for free to visit places of personal or family significance. Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site has landowners whose lands were expropriated during the 1960s. The pass is being introduced for Kejimkujik in the spring of 2014. » Park Passes for Expropriated Landowners...
