To improve service, the application for new park use permits through BC Parks will be going online, making it easier to access.
Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017, an electronic application will replace the paper application form, which will no longer be available or accepted for processing by FrontCounter BC.
BC Parks issues park use permits under the Park Act for restricted activities, such as commercial recreation services, film production, use of land in a park for private or commercial purposes, and research. Permits are also issued under the Ecological Reserve Act for research and educational activities in ecological reserves.
Park use permits are different from permits that visitors may need for backcountry camping or moorage in provincial parks.
An additional online application to amend, renew and transfer park use permits is expected to be available by spring 2018.
