As of June 1, some Parks Canada places began a safe, gradual reopening of some outdoor areas at national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas. Find details here.


All camping facilities including backcountry camping, oTENTiks, and other roofed accommodations remain closed until further notice.

All existing reservations set to take place prior to June 21, 2020, will be automatically cancelled and refunded in full.

Parks Canada will not be taking new reservations until at least June 22, 2020. If you have a reservation after June 21, 2020, you do not need to cancel this reservation. You are encouraged to check back closer to your arrival regarding cancellations.

For current pass holders, Parks Canada will automatically extend the end date of Discovery Passes for the full duration of the suspension period. That means that for each month or part of a month that visitor services are not offered due to Parks Canada's efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, a full month will be added to the end date of the annual pass.

You are encouraged to purchase a Discovery Pass online before your visit as admission fees may be collected at the Parks Canada place you plan to visit.

We are working to ensure that measures are in place to safely collect fees while protecting health and safety. Please plan accordingly and check the pages of Parks Canada places near you for more information.

With increased volume to mail and package delivery services during this global pandemic, shipping timelines cannot be guaranteed. Parks Canada will temporarily accept printed email confirmations that show a valid entry pass or permit. The printed email confirmation can be used until one month from date of purchase or until you receive your pass in the mail.

Whether you’re looking for adventure, fun, science activities for the family, or a break from the everyday, Parks Canada has countless unique experiences to suit your needs. Discover Parks Canada today!
