We rarely head out for an outdoor adventure with the expectation that something will go wrong, and most times everything will go right. However, sometimes the unexpected happens and when it does, it’s important that you are well informed and well prepared to minimise the negative impact of unfortunate circumstances.

Visitors can count on members of Parks Canada, as well as volunteers from the Canadian Ski Patrol, to help during emergency situations.

For general information on how to stay safe when enjoying the outdoors visit Adventuresmart.
