Banff National Park

Volunteer Program

“Volunteering with the Parks Canada team has been a great way to learn about the incredible hard work that Parks Canada fellows are doing every day. I was especially impressed by the staff members’ dedication to conserving the ecological integrity of Parks Canada. Learning about Parks Canada was not only inspiring; it was also strongly motivating and encouraging. I am very thankful for all they have done for me and the other volunteers” - Christine, International Volunteer
