Free admission for youth 17 and under

Starting January 1, 2018, admission to Parks Canada places for youth 17 and under is free! There’s no better time to create lasting memories with the whole family.

Admission to all national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas operated by Parks Canada will be provided free of charge.

Free admission for youth only applies to places managed by Parks Canada. It does not apply to provincial parks, territorial parks, municipal and private parks, nor to the many historic sites not managed by Parks Canada.
