One Pass Gets You In!
The Government of Canada has made the Discovery Pass free for youth under the age of 18. The Discovery Pass gives you unlimited admission to over 80 of Canada’s national parks, national marine conservation areas and national historic sites. Take this opportunity to get inspired and witness the great beauty of Canada.
Canada’s national parks boast some of the most breathtakingly beautiful landscapes in the world—some are just a short drive away.

Protecting our Environment and Creating Middle-Class Jobs
A clean environment and a strong economy go hand in hand. Our government is making changes that will keep environmental regulations clear and concise, so projects that create well-paying jobs will meet environmental requirements right from the start.
To do this, we are:
- Creating an accessible online public registry to clarify information about codes of practice, standards, fish habitat restoration plans, administrative agreements, permits, and authorization decisions.
- Making decisions on projects based on science, evidence, public participation, and Indigenous traditional knowledge.
- Introducing a “one project, one review” model that would reduce duplication of assessments and the red tape that prevents projects from being built. We will create the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada, a single body to lead all federal reviews.
- Taking into consideration not only the environmental impacts, but also the health, social, and economic impacts when assessing projects. We will also look at the impact on Indigenous communities and include a gender-based analysis.
Let’s do our part for the environment…
