After 100 years of existence, Parks Canada has become the largest provider of historical and natural heritage tourism in Canada. As we enter a second century of conservation, storytelling, and wowing visitors, Parks Canada renews its invitation to all Canadians to get involved in their treasured places to help address the challenges of today and tomorrow. In so doing, we will keep exploring, deepening and celebrating our connection to some of the most inspiring and vibrant places in the world.

This is Parks Canada’s way of renewing its commitment to future generations: 100 years from now, our successors will look back upon our efforts and achievements and see a truly remarkable legacy of heritage creation and preservation that will fuel their pride in this country, “Our home and native land”.

“Our biggest reward will be the sense of accomplishment of having given our great great grandchildren a future of hope, inspiration and collective duty to protect the defining moments and iconic places that define who we are as a country.”
Alan Latourelle, Parks Canada CEO. 2011
