A Park Pass is a permit to visit a national park. Park pass fees help pay for scenic parkways, day use areas, trails, public safety, education and information services. Fees remain in the national park or national historic site where they are collected.
All revenues from Park Passes remain in the location in which they are collected and help maintain the places and services that national and international visitors use most – including scenic parkways, day use areas, trails and public safety, education and information services.
Canadian tax dollars help Parks Canada create, maintain and restore National Parks, National Historic Sites and National Marine Conservation Areas. Parks Canada tries to ensure good value for visitors and fair economic return for taxpayers while upholding its mandate.
