La Mauricie National Park

Changes coming to Parks Canada Fees in 2023

Some Parks Canada fees will be changing beginning in January 2023. More information is available here.

Entry and service fees are charged at most national parks and national historic sites, where revenues are kept to support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future — and in a legacy for future generations.

The following definitions apply to entry and service fee categories unless otherwise specified

Adult - Person 18 to 64 years of age
Senior - Person 65 years of age or over
Youth - Person 6 to 17 years of age
Family/Group - Up to seven people arriving in a single vehicle in a national park

Free admission for youth 17 and under
