The Government of Canada acknowledges and respects the extraordinary contributions and sacrifices made by Canadian Veterans, active Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members, and their families.
MP Terry Sheehan is pleased that our Federal Government has announced that Parks Canada will be providing free daily admission to active CAF members, Veterans of the CAF, and their immediate families.
“Together we must continue to find ways to honour Canadian Veterans, active Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members, and their families for being there for Canada. Thank you for your service.” said, Terry Sheehan, Member of Parliament for Sault Ste. Marie and Parliamentary Secretary to Seamus O’Reagan, Minister of Labour and Seniors
Spending time in nature is beneficial to one’s health and exploring cultural sites and stories can provide opportunities to spend quality time alone or with families and friends. Parks Canada administered national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas provide excellent opportunities for Canadians to get outside, relieve stress, and connect with loved ones. By providing free daily admission, Parks Canada is supporting the health and wellness of CAF members, Veterans of the CAF, and their immediate family members.
Effective January 1, 2024, CAF members, Veterans of the CAF, and their immediate families will receive free daily admission to all Parks Canada administered locations by presenting their CF One Platinum card, which is administered through Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS). CF One Platinum cards are issued exclusively to currently serving members and Veterans of the CAF and their immediate families.Veterans can also present their Veteran’s Service Card which is available to any former member of the Canadian Armed Forces who completed basic training and has been honourably released.
