Highlights

Note: Due to COVID-19, the visitor experience at Parks Canada places will be different than it has been in the past. The health and safety of visitors, employees and all Canadians is of the utmost importance.

Parks Canada is asking visitors to comply with recommendations from Nova Scotia public health authorities by wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, and by respecting recommended social distancing measures at all times.

Parks Canada’s network of protected places is large and diverse. Visitor access, services, and even opening dates may vary across Cape Breton Island and Canso depending on local circumstances. Please visit pc.gc.ca/ns and follow Parks Canada’s social media channels for information and updates on the status of all Parks Canada places. 

Camping: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Parks Canada has suspended access to some campgrounds in Cape Breton Highlands National Park until further notice. Please visit https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/ns/cbreton for updates. We ask that you plan ahead by checking the Parks Canada web site regularly. 

Visitor Centres: On July 20th, our visitor reception centres in Ingonish and Chéticamp in Cape Breton Highlands National Park reopened.
