Canadians and their families should have every opportunity to explore Canada’s great outdoors and learn more about our country and its history. That is why the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today highlighted several proposed investments in Budget 2017 to support Parks Canada, help complete the Trans Canada Trail, and protect our environment and cultural heritage.
While in Thousand Islands National Park, Prime Minister Trudeau highlighted proposed investments of up to $364 million over two years on a cash basis, starting in 2018-19, to support Parks Canada’s management of national parks, national marine conservation areas, and national historic sites. He also highlighted a proposed investment of $30 million over five years, starting in 2017-18, to help complete the Trans Canada Trail in partnership with provinces, territories, Indigenous communities, and individual Canadians.
Together, these investments will enrich our communities, create jobs and economic growth through tourism, and make Canada an even better place to live and raise a family.
