Fee adjustments and public consultation on fees
On January 1, 2020, visitors will see a minor adjustment of 2.2% on many Parks Canada fees.
The Agency recently assessed the current service level offered at Parks Canada places. Through this review, 24 sites were reclassified and their admission fees will be adjusted. Learn more about these adjustments.
Parks Canada values your input. To ensure future price adjustments to value added services and amenities continue to be fair to tax payers and users, please participate in the public consultation on fees taking place between January 15 and February 15, 2019.
