In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the risk to the Canadian population, visitors and employees, Parks Canada may close certain areas or reduce their capacity to limit the number of visitors. In the event of very heavy traffic, park admission may be temporarily limited to holders of accommodation or boat rental reservations.
Consult the measures in place.
