Free 2017 Parks Canada Discovery Pass

In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Parks Canada is offering their 2017 Discovery Pass free of charge. This pass normally costs ~ $140 for a family, so this is obviously phenomenal value. You can order more than one pass in a single order, and there is no shipping charge or collection of credit card information. The pass can be shipped to anywhere in the world, so if you’re planning a trip to Canada anytime in 2017, might as well order a pass.

Did you order your free pass? Planning a trip to a Canadian national park?



  1. Aren’t they waiving all admission fees for 2017 anyway? I still requested a pass as I’m planning to visit several parks next year but I’m not sure what’s different if they’re doing free admission to begin with.

  2. So, one page says no promo code is needed, yet on the checkout page, it demands a promo code. Any ideas? Thanks.
