Infrastructure improvements at Parks Canada administered places
To ensure visitors have the best possible experiences, we are renewing structures like trails, campgrounds, visitor centres and parkways in our treasured places across the country.
This is the result of an unprecedented investment in the infrastructure of Canada’s precious natural and historic legacy. These investments, totaling $3 billion over 5 years, represent the largest federal infrastructure plan in the history of Parks Canada.
We will make every effort to minimize disruptions caused by the infrastructure work for your clients. In most instances these disruptions will be minimal and where there is a higher impact, there will be new programming to ensure a positive experience for all our visitors.
The following upcoming projects may have a temporary impact on your clients’ visit. For specific details on the project or potential visitor impacts, please follow the links. Please check back often as the information is updated.

Province House National Historic Site is currently closed for an extensive conservation project. The building is more than 170 years old and in pressing need of repair. Province House is a historic and complex building and this project presents the unique challenge of rehabilitating the structure, while respecting its heritage character-defining elements.
The Government of Canada is investing in the Province House project to conserve this structure, which is both the historic birthplace of Canada and the seat of Prince Edward Island’s Provincial Legislature. This project began in 2015 and is slated to be completed in 2022.
