2017 Canadian Park Fees

saw this while searching for Canadian Holidays in 2017 and planning an Escape adventure.

"Parks Canada is waiving entrance fees in 2017 to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday."

anyone know if this is also for USA visitors ?

It's for anyone entering the national parks, and for all types of entrance passes (day or annual, single or group, etc), so come celebrate with us.
Note that this is for entrance fees only, not campground fees. So if you stay in a national park you'll save the entrance portion, but still pay for your site; if you just visit for the day to see the sights, no fee. Also, this for the federally run national parks; many parks are provincially owned and operated and so not part of the promotion.

To make this simple for annual passes, passes purchased during 2016 will expire on the corresponding month in 2018 (24 months after purchase), instead of in 2017 (the usual 12 months after purchase).

Americans pay double.

They have always maintained it is for all visitors.
