Celebrate Canada Day with Parks Canada – Free Admission on Canada Day!


Canada is celebrating its 149th birthday and Parks Canada wants you to join in, experience the outdoors with your family, for free!


Parks Canada invites Canadians and international visitors to celebrate Canada Day on Friday, July 1st with free admission to all national parks, national marine conservation areas, and Parks Canada administered national historic sites. Lockage at all stations on the Trent-Severn Waterway and the Rideau Canal as well as at Quebec’s historic canals will also be free for the day.

We can experience our rich Canadian history through these treasured places in a special way. As we get closer to our 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017, the Government invites all Canadians to experience the outdoors and learn more about our environment and history this summer.

In addition to this news, the Governement is also pleased to announce that admission and lockage will be free all year in 2017 in celebration of Canada’s 150th. For more information, visit www.pc.gc.ca.
