Some National Parks across Canada are to partially reopen on June 1

Earlier this week Parks Canada had announced a list of national parks that will be reopening on Monday, June 1, 2020

National parks, historic sites, as well as marine conservation areas have been closed since late March in efforts to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on May 14 that some parks, including national parks, would soon be reopening but only where visitors can practice physical distancing

Earlier this week, Parks Canada announced that more than half of Canada’s national parks will be resuming operations as of June 1.

Of Canada’s 48 national parks, 29 will reopen this upcoming Monday, June 1 including;

  • Cape Breton Highlands National Park (N.S.)
  • Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site (N.S.)

Parks Canada explained that the gradual reopening will include access to day-use areas, trails, beaches, and green space and may include access for recreational boating and fishing.

Currently, all camping facilities continue to remain closed until at least June 21 as Parks Canada assesses how to safely resume these services.

Federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Johnathan Wilkinson commented on the reopening of the parks saying that it is meant to “create space for people to be outside” amid the COVID-19 pandemic that had kept people stuck at home since March. “We will get to camping and we certainly will get to the backcountry. And my expectation is folks who like to get into the backcountry will be able to do so this summer” said the Environment Minister.

More information on which national parks and locations are open, what visitors can expect and how to prepare is available on the Parks Canada website.
