Canadian national parks and historic sites in Quebec are all free on July 1


You can still move to Quebec on July 1, even if you don’t change apartments.

Federal national parks and historic sites across the province will all be free to enter this Friday, making your next nature getaway much more accessible. Environment Canada predicts the weather will even cooperate with a mix of sun and cloud and a temperature of 29°C.

Quebec’s historic canals will also be free for the day, as well as the Trent-Severn Waterway and the Rideau Canal in Ontario, if you’re up for a ride.

In fact, all 171 national historic sites, 47 national parks, five national marine conservation areas and one national urban park will be open nationwide for free.

Admission to places administered by Parks Canada is free year-round for anyone 17 and under. There’s also a new promotion offering free admission to new Canadian citizens for a year (via the Institute for Canadian Citizenship’s Canoo mobile app).

Meanwhile, the Parks Canada Discovery Pass provides unlimited access for a full year to over 80 national destinations. You can purchase a pass online for $72.25 per adult or $145.25 for a family of up to seven. If you spend seven days at a Parks Canada site, the pass is amortized.

If you’re looking for ideas for natural sites to explore in the province, these are included in the July 1 promotion:
