When I first joined the team, what struck me the most was the passion that was present. The whole team is dedicated to young people and ensuring that they are committed, that they are educated, that they marvel at our national parks and historic sites and that they are motivated to protect our country so that it will be a beautiful country for a long time to come. During your adventure with Parks Canada, you will have the chance to meet dedicated people, live extraordinary experiences and receive training that exceeds expectations!”

It has given me the opportunity to truly embrace my passions for the outdoors and dig deeper into the rich history of Canada.

Working with individuals from around Canada who are passionate about conservation, youth engagement and the well being of our Parks has been truly inspiring!

Networking, collaborating, and making impactful change within Parks Canada is just the tip of the iceberg of what this program has to offer.”
