All Parks In Canada Will Be Free In 2017
Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!
In 2017, you will be able to see all the beauty Canada has to offer...FO FREE!
Justin Trudeau's government decided to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary by waiving all park entrance fees for the year.
CBC reports that youth (children under 18), will have free access to the parks in 2018, as well as "new Canadians" (those who have become Canadians in the last 12 months since the 2017 start date of these initiatives) will be able to visit the parks for free in 2018.
"I think the experience will be an exceptional one, particularly for many new Canadians who have yet to experience our national parks," said Darren Reeder, the executive director of the Banff Lake Louise Hospitality Association.
