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.

What is free for youth?

Admission

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.

Please refer to the full list of Parks Canada places before you plan your visit to take advantage of free admission for youth.

What is not free?

Parks Canada is pleased to offer free admission for youth at our parks and sites, however regular fees still apply for other experiences and services, such as:

  • Camping, backcountry and other accommodations
  • Canadian Rockies Hot Springs
  • Northern Park Backcountry Camping and Excursion Permit
  • Lockage
  • Mooring
  • Reservation fees
  • Guided tours and hikes and programs not usually included with admission
  • Some special event fees
  • Firewood
  • Backcountry overnight use

Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Please verify with the location you will be visiting for more information.


Entry and service fees are charged at most national parks and national historic sites, where revenues are kept to support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future — and in a legacy for future generations.

The following definitions apply to entry and service fee categories unless otherwise specified:

Adult: Person 18 to 64 years of age
Senior: Person 65 years of age or over
Youth: Person 6 to 17 years of age
Family/Group: Up to seven people arriving in a single vehicle in a national park.
