Admission Fees for Commercial Group Tour Operators

Fee Freeze

We have frozen prices for all Parks Canada admission fees, camping at national parks, lockage and mooring at historic canals and several other national fees for basic services.
This price freeze will help the tourism industry and local economies – and help more Canadians experience our treasured natural and historic places. For commercial groups, 2009 prices are in effect until at least December 31, 2016.

Advance Notice of Fee Increases

Parks Canada is committed to provide the tourism industry with a minimum of 18 months advance notice of new travel trade fees. The current entry fees through to December 31, 2016 are listed below.

Maintaining High Quality Visitor Services

Parks Canada is known for providing high quality visitor experiences at Canada's world-renowned national parks and national historic sites. Parks Canada will be spending the money earned from commercial group tour fees in parks and sites where they are collected to help ensure that visitor facilities continue to meet your expectations in the years to come.

  • 5% for annual volumes of 500 to 2000 visitors
  • 10% for annual volumes of 2001 to 3000 visitors
