Earlier this year when I was in Banff, Alberta, I purchased a Canadian National Park Pass. To my surprise the lady at the drive-thru informed me that I should keep it as I can use it all across Canada at the different National Parks, including Prince Edward Island's. Total cost for one adult was $63.
To purchase a park pass for PEI's National Park, it cost $63 but can only be used on PEI. When you purchase a park pass on PEI, you can not use it elsewhere however if you purchase a park pass elsewhere you can use it everywhere.
Why are the benefits of purchasing a National Park pass in Alberta different then PEI?
One reason might be that PEI offers a discount to the local citizens who purchase a park pass before a certain date. But for those who don't purchase it before that date, they still are not able to use the park pass elsewhere.
According to this website you can purchase the pass anywhere in Canada and the website makes no reference to these differences.
How is this right? Update: It isn't! Seems the information provided to me on this was wrong. The cost of the PEI Parks pass is not $63.
