Parks Canada’s federal infrastructure investment program

Parks Canada’s federal infrastructure investment program

Since 2015, the Government of Canada has invested more than $3 billion to rehabilitate infrastructure assets in national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. This historic investment is the largest federal infrastructure plan in the history of Parks Canada.

Through infrastructure investments, Parks Canada is protecting and conserving national treasures, while supporting local economies and contributing to growth in the tourism sector. Investments in heritage, visitor, waterway, and highway infrastructure ensure safe, high-quality and meaningful experiences for visitors, enabling Canadians to discover nature and connect with history.

Ecological integrity is Parks Canada’s first priority. Impact assessments are used to manage the impact of infrastructure projects, and when possible, increase ecological gains for park ecosystems.
