Note: Due to COVID-19, the visitor experience at Parks Canada-administered 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. As of October 4, 2021, following provincial public health measures, proof of full vaccination is required at all Nova Scotia national historic sites, and Parks Canada organized events and experiences for visitors 12 years of age and older. 

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 and follow Parks Canada’s social media channels for information and updates on the status of all Parks Canada-administered places.
