Canada NewsWire

OTTAWA, ON, June 27, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - National historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas are gateways to connecting with nature, culture and history. These treasured places tell the stories of Canada and immerse visitors in our country's natural and cultural heritage.

On July 1st, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, invites Canadians and international visitors to connect with some of Canada's most iconic destinations with free admission at all national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas. Lockage along the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site and the Rideau Canal National Historic Site, as well as at Québec's historic canals will also be free for the day.

Canada Day presents an opportunity for everyone to come together and to reflect on what unites us, the diverse facets of history and culture in Canada, and to work toward a better future. By walking in the footsteps of history or soaking in breathtaking landscapes, Parks Canada administered places provide the perfect setting for visitors to experience Canada, including learning more about the histories, cultures, and contributions of Indigenous peoples.  

As cornerstones of Canada's tourism industry, Parks Canada administered places are committed to providing visitors with safe and meaningful experiences across the country. To make the most of their experience, visitors are encouraged to plan their trip in advance by visiting the Parks Canada website, signing up for our e-newsletter, downloading Parks Canada's mobile app, and following us on social media for inspiration on places to visit and to help plan the perfect outing.

Happy Canada Day!"

The Honourable Steven Guilbeault,
Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada
