About Parks Canada

In 1911, led by visionary James Harkin, Canada established the world’s first national parks service. Today, as it has throughout the entire course of its existence, Parks Canada champions the conservation and enjoyment of Canada’s greatest natural and historic treasures for the benefit of current and future generations.

From coast to coast to coast, Parks Canada manages the national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas of Canada, providing a revered connection between the ‘hearts and minds’ of Canadians and the very essence of this country.

Parks Canada Official Merchandise Gives Back

A safe haven for Point Pelee turtles

A portion of the proceeds from Parks Canada Shop enabled Point Pelee National Park to enlist the help of experts who recommended new measures to make the local habitat safer for turtles. The park’s snakes, frogs, toads and the endangered ‘five-lined skink’, a tiny lizard familiar to the area, will also benefit from these measures.

Acoustic tracking for at-risk bats

A portion of the proceeds from Parks Canada Shop helped researchers at Thousand Islands National Park to acquire special sonic listening equipment for monitoring the park’s bat population. This gear is aiding Parks Canada’s critical efforts to fight ‘white-nose syndrome’, a disease that threatens the entire population of the nation’s cave-dwelling bats.
