got free one last year and only used it once so it'll be cheaper to pay for single use than an annual pass

National parks that I am familiar with are not close to cities so a visit typically requires an overnight stay at the park. With everyone having free access, hotels were full and expensive plus the parks had too many people in them. Enjoyment of the park decreased as a result so people that used to goto the park normally most likely went less.

The 2017 Canada 150 Parks Canada Pass was good for a lot more than just National Parks... It was also good for admission to National Historic Sites.

That said, like the others we certainly did not use our FREE Pass as much as we should have,.. seems we just got bogged down with other stuff during the summer months (and the weather was crappy in Eastern Ontario... with fewer warm & sunny days we did not make as many road trips in 2017 as in past years)

I guess it depends on where you live but living in Calgary and being 1,5-3 hours away from 4-5 major national parks makes having this an absolute must for me. Glad I can save 20% over it as I would be buying it anyways. Thanks for posting.

Just took a look at Alberta national historic sites and I would say most of the ones that are of interest are located in national parks or located within a city (some require additional fees to get in). The other sites are of minimal interest to most people (maybe you drop by for a 5 minute picture if it's along the way of a trip but you're not going to make much effort to get there).

I too got a pass and never used it once. What a big bureaucratic waste when instead of going through the process (no doubt lots of people hired for this) of getting one and then paying to produce and mail a high quality colour pass they could have just let people with Canadian ID in for free.

It's just greed, say something it's free and doesn't matter what it is people will want it. My friend got 3 family passes free, one for his family, one for his mom, one for his in-law, I ask him why, there's only the five of you in 3 households, one pass is enough. and he said, "it's free!"
Greed! It's human.

What a stupid post.
I didn't use mine either.

I went to Algonquin Park multiple times but that's a provincial park and has a completely different pass. I would love to see the Ontario parks pass go on sale.
