The national parks of Canada are managed by Parks Canada Agency. According to the agency’s charter, they are committed to protect and present the national parks and service the Canadian people. With around 15.9 million visitors in the fiscal year ending March 2018, the national parks of Canada are a benefit to both the environment and national tourism. Parks Canada also manages the national historic sites of Canada, including the historic canals. In the 2018 fiscal year, the number of visitors to those sites reached nearly 9.2 million.

Of the sites that Parks Canada manages, the seven mountain parks (Banff, Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay, Waterton Lakes, Mount Revelstoke, and Glacier) have the most visitors overall. These parks are all within or bordering the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

The most visited national park in 2019 was Banff, one of the seven mountain parks.
