You can still get moving in Quebec on July 1, even if you're not changing apartments.

Federal national parks and historic sites in the province will all be free to enter that Friday, which makes your next nature escape a lot more accessible. Environment Canada predicts that the weather will even cooperate with a mix of sun and cloud and 29°C high.

Quebec's historic canals will also be free for the day, along with the Trent-Severn Waterway and the Rideau Canal in Ontario, if you're up for a drive.

In fact, all 171 national historic sites, 47 national parks, five national marine conservation areas, and one national urban park will be open across the country at no cost.

Admission to Parks Canada-administered places is free year-round for anyone aged 17 and under. There's also a new promotion offering free admission to new Canadian citizens for one year (via the Institute for Canadian Citizenship’s Canoo mobile app).

Meanwhile, the Parks Canada Discovery Pass offers unlimited admission for a full year to over 80 national destinations. You can buy a pass online for $72.25 per adult, or $145.25 for a family of up to seven. If you spend seven days at a Parks Canada site, then the pass pays for itself.

If you're looking for ideas on in-province nature spots to explore, these are included in the July 1 promotion:
