Parks Canada merchandise – your purchase helps conservation!
Parks Canada official merchandise was created as a meaningful outlet for expressing Canadians' pride and support for their country’s incredible natural spaces and heritage places.
There are multiple ways Canadians and international visitors can purchase Parks Canada official merchandise: online through the Parks Canada Shop, or in stores owned and managed by Parks Canada or other retailers.
Since 2017, 100% of the profits made by Parks Canada through the sale of official merchandise have supported programs and conservation projects at places managed by Parks Canada. Here are some of these projects.
Point Pelee National Park enlisted the help of experts who recommended new measures to make the local habitat safer for turtles, which will also benefit the park’s snakes, frogs, toads and the endangered five-lined skink, a tiny lizard familiar to the area.
At Grasslands National Park, prescribed fire has improved grassland habitat for birds and some iconic prairie species including bison and the super-cute (and threatened) black-tailed prairie dog. Prescribed fire helps restore grassland biodiversity and reduce combustible grasses that contribute to uncontrollable wildfires.
In Kluane National Park and Reserve, proceeds helped fund genetic research of the kokanee salmon to determine viable recovery options. Parks Canada is concerned about declining numbers and the genetic health of the current population.
