Parks Canada places belong to all Canadians. That is why the Government of Canada is pleased to continue to offer free admission to all Parks Canadas places for youth aged 17 and under. By encouraging young people to discover nature and connect with history, we can help to inspire the next generation of stewards for these protected places.

In celebration of diversity, Parks Canada continues to offer free admission to new Canadian citizens for one year through the Institute for Canadian Citizenships Canoo mobile app. Visiting Parks Canadas national heritage places is a great way for Canadians to experience the outdoors and learn more about our environment and heritage.

Parks Canada staff at Pukaskwa National Park are excited to welcome new and returning guests to experience everything that the park has to offer.


Warm weather is finally here. Its the perfect time to head back outside and reconnect with the places we love. Parks Canada has so many wonderful places where Canadians and visitors to Canada can explore our wilderness and learn about our culture and history. The Government of Canada is pleased to offer free admission to all Parks Canadas places for young people, 17 and under.
