Free Entry to All National Parks in Canada through 2017

Jan 11, 2017

To celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, Parks Canada is offering its 2017 Discovery Pass free of charge. It would normally cost around $140 per family.

It's an opportunity to visit some of the country's most famous sites, such as Banff, Pacific Rim, the Bruce Peninsula, the Thousand Islands, Cape Breton and Gros Morne.

Some practical details:

  • You can have the pass shipped to your address for free, or pick one up at a park entrance
  • It covers unlimited entry to National Parks, Historic Sites and Marine Conservation areas operated by Parks Canada
  • Extras that carry a separate fee, such as camping, tours or parking, are not included
  • The pass is valid from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2017

Free admission to Canada's National Parks is one of the reasons why our Toronto office picked the country as one of their Wow Deal Destinations for 2017. Click here for tips and deals.
