Parks Canada is inviting Canadians and visitors from around the world to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary at our national treasures from coast to coast to coast.

What is free?
Admission to all national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas operated by Parks Canada;
Lockage at Parks Canada's canal and historic waterways;
What is not free?
Parks Canada is pleased to offer free admission to our places, however, regular fees still apply for other experiences and services, such as:
Camping and other accommodations

Guided tours and hikes and programs not usually included with admission
Overnight backcountry use.
Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Please verify with the location you will be visiting for more details.
