What is a National Park Pass and why do I need one?

A National Park Pass is required when entering a national park. Banff National Park entry fees help support visitor services and facilities. 

The Day Pass or Annual Discovery Pass includes admission to all national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas operated by Parks Canada. Pre-purchasing the Park Pass provides faster entry and greater convenience. You can pre-purchase your Park Pass here.
