Parks Canada’s 2021 visitor season begins this weekend
Spending time in nature and outdoors has a number of health and wellness benefits. As Canadians do their part to limit the spread of COVID-19, having access to national historic sites and national parks to get outside while following the guidance of public health experts, has been more important than ever.
As Parks Canada prepares to kick off its 2021 visitor season over the May long-weekend, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, Jonathan Wilkinson, took the opportunity to remind Canadians of the importance of getting outdoors while following public health guidance and staying safe.
Before visiting, there are a few things that everyone should remember: Like Planning ahead, following travel restrictions, making safe choices, respect wildlife and leaving no trace.
