Parks Canada is calling on Canadians to support the national effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay home.
Torngat Mountains National Park
The health and safety of Canadians, visitors, and Parks Canada team members is of the utmost importance to the Agency. Parks Canada is doing its part to contain the novel coronavirus and reduce risks to employees and visitors. We look forward to resuming normal operations, but for now we must all work together to limit the spread of COVID-19.
On Thursday, March 19, 2020, Parks Canada temporarily suspended all visitor services in all national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas across the country until further notice. Effective 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Agency will temporarily suspend all motor vehicle access by visitors in order to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Indigenous traditional activities in Parks Canada locations will continue, but all users are asked to follow the advice of public health experts on social distancing.
Search and rescue services are limited at this time. Please understand that even low risk backcountry activities have the potential to add a huge burden on SAR personnel and the health care system in the event of a mishap, placing a burden on Search and Rescue personnel and the health care system at this critical time.
