Parks Canada is completing work to enhance and re-establish vital infrastructure, services and activities in Waterton Lakes National Park. Many projects have already been completed under the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Road to Recovery programs. Visit our Completed Projects page for pictures and information.
Federal Infrastructure Investment program
Parks Canada will invest $3 billion over 5 years to support infrastructure improvements 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.
Approximately $96 million has been invested in 18 projects throughout the park through the Federal Infrastructure Investment Program over the last four years.
Road to Recovery program
Parks Canada is assessing, repairing and rebuilding over 30 assets damaged in the 2017 Kenow Wildfire.
Projects resulting in a closure or major impact
Crandell Mountain Campground
Parks Canada is developing rehabilitation plans for Crandell Mountain Campground. Both construction and natural regeneration of this site will take time.
Future work will include replacing utilities and building visitor facilities and campsites. Visitors can expect a similar camping experience once the site is rehabilitated.
Visitor centre construction has resumed. The site remains closed to public access.
