As one of the largest federal custodians, Parks Canada manages a variety of real property and infrastructure assets. In these two parks, the infrastructure portfolio is wide-ranging and includes assets such as roads, bridges, buildings, trails, campgrounds, water and wastewater treatment facilities, visitor centre and operations compounds.

Parks Canada’s Federal Infrastructure Investment Program

Announced in 2015, Parks Canada is investing $3 billion over five years to rehabilitate infrastructure assets across Canada. Almost $16 million will be spent at Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park on these improvements.  

This historic investment supports conservation while making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors. 

These projects are expected to continue until 2020.
