All National Parks In Canada Will Be FREE On Canada Day

A Parks Canada spokesperson has confirmed to MTLBlog that, in fact, all national parks and historic sites managed by the agency will be free to visit on Canada Day, July 1st, once again this year. 

On its wesbite, Parks Canada only lists certain locations as free for the national holiday. In addition, only 18 parks and sites promise free Canada Day admission on their individual sites. But the spokesperson assures that the promotion will extend to all Parks Canada places.

There's no better time to explore Canada's heritage, history, and national beauty than Canada Day, which marks the signing of the Confederation Act, the document that merged several entities into the single dominion of Canada.

In addition to free admission, several national parks will also host special Canada Day activities. Pukaskwa, Point Pelee, and Gros Morne national parks, along with several historic sites, are offering cake to Canada Day visitors.

July 1st isn't the only day Canadians may visit Parks Canada sites for free in the next month, either. Select national historic places will be free to explore on July 7th, National Historic Places Day. At least one site will also be free for Parks Day on July 20th.

According to the Parks Canada website, children and teens under the age of 18 and new Canadian citizens may also enjoy yearlong free entry into all national parks, historic sites, and national marine conservation areas.
