The Government of Canada is committed to protecting nature, parks, and wild spaces. We are pleased to see new and innovative initiatives like the Accelerate Kootenays project that enable Canadians to connect with Parks Canada places in the most eco-friendly way possible. The new EV charging stations in Glacier and Yoho national parks support electric mobility across Canada’s mountain ranges – promoting clean air, clear water, and a healthy environment.
