For Parents

Know the past. Enjoy the present. Protect the future.

If your son or daughter is in grade 8 or secondary 2, their teachers are encouraged to order My Parks Passes in April-May 2014. The pass grants them free daily access to over 200 Parks Canada locations for a full year (valid until April 30, 2015).

By showing their My Parks Pass, they can also obtain an instant discount for the entire family on a daily family or group pass. The My Parks Pass entitles you to purchase an annual park/historic site-specific pass or a Parks Canada Discovery Pass (which grants unlimited entry to all Parks Canada places for an entire year) at a discounted rate. Buy yours today for an adventure the entire family will enjoy!
 
Parents of home-schooled students who would like to receive a pass are asked to contact us at 1-888-773-8888 or info@myparkspass.ca.
