Canadian National Parks
Canada’s national parks are fee-free on Canada Day (July 1) and Parks Day, which generally falls on the third Saturday in July. Individual parks may also offer promotions throughout the year with reduced or free admission. To promote tourism, Parks Canada has not increased most of its fees since 2008.
