In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017, entrance to Canada’s National Parks, Historic Sites and Marine Conservation Areas is FREE during 2017. You can order your FREE 2017 Discovery Pass by visiting the Parks Canada website. The passes are valid from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. As stated on the Parks Canada site, “You only need to order one pass for your group or family if you are all travelling together. A 2017 Discovery Pass is valid for everyone arriving in the same vehicle at a national park, or arriving together at a marine conservation area or historic site. Activities such as tours or parking that normally carry a separate fee may not be covered by the Discovery Pass. Camping fees are not included with the Discovery Pass.”
