* Parks Canada will align its season, hours of operation, and services to better reflect patterns of visitation. Access to national parks and national historic sites during peak season will not be affected. When visitation is at its highest, facilities at national parks and national historic sites will be fully operational. This initiative is consistent with similar adjustments other public and private sector tourism destinations make on a regular basis to match service levels and hours of operation with visitor demand. Parks Canada will maintain guided activities at the busiest national historic sites while moving to self-guided visitor activities at other national historic sites. Furthermore, Parks Canada identified internal efficiencies and other changes to its internal operations that limit direct impacts on service to Canadians. These decisions respect Parks Canada’s core mandate to protect and present Canada’s treasured protected places within this current fiscal environment, while finding savings by leveraging innovative approaches to ensure value for money.
