Parks Canada Passes- free in 2017!

I need to catch up on the forum- lots of good posts going by my feed!
Here is something that may be of interest to all y'all northern travelers: for their sesquicentennial*, entry fees to national parks in Canada are waived with the pass.

* the only reason I know that word is that West Virginia is in it's sesquicentennial year in 2016. Mountaineers are always Free!

Great timing, thanks,. I'll be passing through Banff and Jasper National parks in a couple weeks, so I ordered one today. If it doesn't arrive by mail before I leave, I see that I might be able to get one at park entrances too. With the strong US dollar in Canada (currently $1US = $1.33CDN) and free park passes, this may be my least expensive trip there yet. Thanks again for posting...............

And they even mail it to the USA for free, too! Thanks for the heads-up. Just ordered.

Ordered mine ! Not sure I'll even get up there - but it's a good excuse to go now isn't it? Can't beat free.

Got one for us and one for the daughter in Missoula. They're likely to use theirs (not too far from Canada) and we may if our SMB comes in on schedule!

Hey glad people are interested. Here are some good border crossing info links I posted over on Arctictraveler's thread 'recommended routes from Missoula to Prince Rupert'.

http://www.ezbordercrossing.com/list...der-crossings/

The following one is a switchboard with traffic links for border states. Of course this means we are probably on some list somewhere now

http://www.ezbordercrossing.com/border-road-conditions/

I was in Maine lat summer and there were some easy runs to Canadian parks I wanted to visit so bad but alas was not prepared with passport. Will order one now!
