Canada's national parks are treasures in a world that seems to be constantly under development.
As of 2007, 43 examples of natural landscapes and phenomena are open to the public, yet protected by law "for public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment, while being maintained in an unimpaired state for future generations."
Canada's national parks span every province and territory and include mountains and plains, boreal forests and tundra, lakes and glaciers, and more.
Canada's natural environment has molded the country's national identity and continues to be a source of enjoyment and pride for Canadians and visitors.
