Parks Canada’s infrastructure program
Over the next five years, Parks Canada will invest $3 billion to rehabilitate infrastructure assets within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.
In 2016, Parks Canada undertook a roofing project at Prince of Wales Tower National Historic Site. Regular assessment and monitoring of the structure had shown water infiltration to be a problem along the roofline and around the windows. The objective of this project was to install a new protective roof and windows to address the water infiltration and prevent further deterioration.
