Parks Canada's federal infrastructure investment program
Parks Canada is investing an unprecedented $3 billion dollars over 5 years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada.
This year marks the fourth year of the five-year infrastructure renewal program. This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.
When visiting or driving through Jasper National Park, you may encounter one or more construction zones or reduced services while we complete this important work.
