Fee adjustments at Parks Canada

In 2019, Parks Canada conducted public and stakeholder consultations on fees. Based on the feedback received, Parks Canada will be making changes to some fees beginning January 2023. Learn more about these adjustments.

Parks Canada adjusts fees every two years based on changes in the Consumer Price Index. The next fee adjustment will be January 1, 2024. For a commercial fee list, contact Parks Canada’s travel trade team at tourisme-tourism@pc.gc.ca.

Coronavirus and your clients’ visits to Parks Canada

Parks Canada continues to follow the advice of public health experts to limit the spread of COVID-19, while offering Canadians access to the health and wellness benefits that come from being in natural spaces.

Parks Canada is following the requirements of provincial, territorial, and municipal health authorities regarding proof of vaccination requirements for visitors. Before travelling to a Parks Canada administered place, visitors should confirm if proof of vaccination is required for the activities they want to do. Please visit our website for the place you/your clients will be visiting to confirm proof of vaccination requirements.

The camping experience at Parks Canada will be different than in previous years. Only camping services where health and safety risks can be managed will be opened. Because advice may vary by province or territory, please follow the current guidance in your area.

Plan ahead using our camping during COVID-19 page to check what services will be available.

Jasper National Park: Whistlers campground update

In July 2021, the gates at the newly refurbished Whistlers Campground opened, welcoming back our fellow campers.

It’s more important than ever for people to connect with nature and rediscover the outdoors after feeling the effects of pandemic isolation. Although we are still applying the finishing touches, we look forward to welcoming you to Whistlers Campground, with a grand opening celebration in spring 2022. We would be grateful for your continued understanding and patience, so appreciated during the construction phase, as we reopen Whistlers Campground with new buildings, new systems, and new staff.
