The federal government announced on Thursday that admission for youth 17 and under will be free for all national parks, historic sites and marine conservation areas starting in 2018.

As a gift to Canadians to celebrate the 150th anniversary of confederation, all Canadians enjoyed free Parks Canada admission in 2017.

Adults and seniors will once again be charged admission next year.

“By encouraging young Canadians to visit these national treasures, we will help inspire the next generation of stewards for Canada's protected places,” Catherine McKenna, the minister responsible for Parks Canada, said in a news release.
