Park fees are reinvested in services and facilities visitors enjoy.
Revenue generated from park fees is reinvested in the parks and
sites where it is earned and is spent on visitor services and facilities.
This means that the revenue stays in Prince Albert National Park.
Every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future-and
in a legacy for future generations.
Reinvestment in Prince Albert National Park over recent years
includes: boat launches, Beaver Glen campground improvements,
trail improvements, the new pedestrian bridge over the Waskesiu
River (photo at right) and much more.
Services and facilities providing a public good are paid for through appropriations. Services and facilities providing a personal benefit to visitors are paid for, at least in part, through user fees.
Visitor fees support a wide variety of programs and services including search and rescue, information and campground services, maintenance of washrooms, roads and picnic areas. These increases are critical if Parks Canada is to continue to offer high quality services and to repair or replace aging visitor facilities.
Parks Canada's user fees are comparable to the fees charged by other providers of similar services and facilities.
To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada's Confederation in 2017, Parks Canada's 2016 Annual Passes are valid for two full years!.
