Visiting one of Canada’s national parks could soon cost a little more.
Parks Canada says they’re considering a two per cent fee hike to camp  in each of the country’s 42 parks and 167 national historic sites.
Andrew Campbell with Parks Canada says the government has had a fee freeze in place for the last five years to help the tourism industry.
“Now as we’re seeing the tourism industry begin to grow again, as a regular practice, we used to see our fees go up, and we’re back out consulting on that very same thing,” says Campbell.
The price hike proposal is open for public consultation until the middle of next month and Parliament would need to approve any increase to fees.
“We don’t see that the prices will be in effect until the June or July time frame, so up until then, people will be enjoying it at the 2008 prices,” explains Campbell.
