Other parks, such as Glacier National Park and Mount Revelstoke National Park in BC will rise to $10.02 (up from $7.80), Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site in Alberta, Fort Battleford National Historic Site in Saskatchewan, Bellevue House National Historic Site in Ontario, Fort Lennox National Historic Site in Quebec, and Cape Spear National Historic Site in Newfoundland and Labrador (to name just a few) are also increasing to $7.97 (up from $3.90).
The website goes on to say “Parks Canada’s fees have not been adjusted in over 10 years. By the time adjustments will be applied, the cost of living will have increased by approximately 21%. These small adjustments will help Parks Canada recover a greater portion of the costs associated with visitor services.”
Parks Canada is also opening consultations until February 15, 2019, to discuss other fee hikes for things like hot springs, fishing permits, parking and back country trail use.
