Travel restrictions are currently in place within the province of British Columbia until June 15, 2021.

Travel into and out of British Columbia’s three regional zones for non-essential reasons is prohibited. The restrictions also apply to travellers coming from outside of British Columbia.

Parks Canada will align visitor services in British Columbia with these travel restrictions. Residents of British Columbia are being asked to cancel their camping reservations if in conflict with the new travel restrictions and Parks Canada will be cancelling all out-of-province reservations for national parks and national historic sites in British Columbia until June 15, 2021. All cancelled reservations will be reimbursed in full.

If you are planning to travel to a Parks Canada administered location in British Columbia, it is your responsibility to be aware of and respect all travel restrictions when planning your trip and before making a reservation.
