For all of the nature lovers who are thinking about a trip to Canada, Parks Canada is Waiving All Entrance Fees in 2017 to Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday. Dreams in Heels was twice in Canada i 2015 and we cannot expect less from them since they are the sweetest people. This milestone should be celebrate it!
Most funding for Parks Canada’s roughly $670-million annual budget is generated by the federal government, but the agency also generates its own revenue from a variety of sources that include entrance fees, camping and recreation fees, rentals and concessions.
Parks Canada will lose around $59 million in revenue for waiving park fees for one year…
We at Dreams in Heels think that this is a great initiative that will attract lots of tourists to Canada. One way or another one, this will bring lots of revenue from another sources to the tourism industry within Canada.
Help Canada to celebrate turning The Big 150. We hope to see you around!
