It’s the perfect weekend to visit nature and explore the history of our country.

In honour of Canada Day, Parks Canada is offering free admission to all national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas.

“Canada Day is an opportunity to celebrate what unites us, the diverse facets of history and culture in Canada, and to take time to reflect and talk to one another about how we can work towards a more inclusive and open-minded society. With opportunities to learn more about Canada’s history or to soak in breathtaking views, Parks Canada administered places allowing visitors to experience the country’s rich and diverse natural and cultural heritage. This includes learning more about the historic and contemporary contributions of Indigenous peoples, their histories, and cultures, as well as the special relationships Indigenous peoples have with ancestral lands and waters,” says Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada.

Visitors can download the Parks Canada app, listen to Parks Canada’s new podcast ReCollections, and follow Parks Canada on social media for destination inspiration and to help plan their perfect visit.

Parks Canada protects a vast network of cultural and natural heritage places that includes 171 national historic sites, 47 national parks, five national marine conservation areas and one national urban park.
