Fees

--> Entry and service fees are charged at most national parks and national historic sites, where revenues are kept to support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future — and in a legacy for future generations.

The following definitions apply to entry and service fee categories unless otherwise specified:

Adult: Person 17 to 64 years of age
Senior: Person 65 years of age or over
Youth: Person 6 to 16 years of age
Family/Group: Up to seven people arriving in a single vehicle in a national park.
School Groups: Students of elementary and secondary schools.


Fees listed are currently in effect. Parks Canada has consulted on modifications to fees and is currently going through the necessary approval processes. Upon approval, new and updated fee information will be listed here.
An Asterisk (*) indicates a new or changed fee from the previous year. All fees listed include applicable taxes and are subject to change.
