A century young

“Our centennial is a unique opportunity for Canadians to discover and rediscover some of the best that our country has to offer,” Parks Canada CEO Alan Latourelle recently said. He couldn’t be more right.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Parks Canada, the world’s first national park service, and to celebrate there’s a summer lineup of events at more than 200 national parks.

In addition to a June 18 to 19 Learn-to-Camp Weekend, there will be two Doors Open, free-entry days this year: July 1, as usual, and July 16, which will be the highlight of the season with over 100 activities and events planned across the country.

There will also be a Fab Forts Weekend (inspired by the 300th anniversary of the completion of Fort Chambly) on August 20 and 21 at historic fur trade and military posts. Expect military history re-enactors and local musicians, singers and dancers. The finale includes a coast-to-coast Parks Canada 100-gun salute. pc.gc.ca or get updates at facebook.com/parkscanada.
