Parks Canada Closes all Motor-Vehicle Access to National Parks

We’re not on a vacation here. Now is not the time to cross National Parks off of your bucket list. You want to explore the trails with your immediate family? Fine – but it’s not the time to be road trippin’ with hundreds of other people in the parks.

Parks Canada Closes all Motor Vehicle Access to National Parks

Parks Canada announced today, March 24, that all visitor motor-vehicle access to all national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas will be closed as of midnight tonight until further notice.

The closures include vehicle services, trails, washrooms, day-use facilities, showers, visitor centres, and all camping facilities (including oTENTiks, yurts, and backcountry camping).

While all parking facilities and related services at Parks Canada locations are being closed, all highways and roadways through these locations will remain open (parking is not permitted on highways or roadways).
