Canada's National Parks Are Free in 2017

This year, U.S. residents delighted in and celebrated the 100th birthday of the National Park Service. In 2017, it is Canada’s turn to celebrate, and they have something magnificent planned.

In honor of Canada’s 150th birthday, all 47 of Canada’s diverse national parks will offer free Discovery Passes for any and all visitors—Canadian or otherwise—giving them the opportunity to cross the country’s 13 provinces for the duration of 2017. In total, the pass gives access to 171 national parks, marine conservation areas and historic sites. One Discovery Pass per car is all that is required, as opposed to the usual fee of $7 per person. Guests are still subject, however, to camping fees and tours with park rangers.
