Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation & Infrastructure and Mary Polak, Minister of Environment unveiled the new commemorative BC Parks license plates at Jack Pool Plaza:

The license plates will retail for $50 and then cost $40 each annual renewal. Net proceeds from sales and renewal fees will go into the Park Enhancement Fund and be re-invested into provincial parks.


The program is part of the BC Parks Future Strategy which Premier Christy Clark announced late 2016. The strategy includes building 1,900 new campsites, endowing a new BC Parks Foundation and hiring more park rangers. BC Parks also has a new online donation portal which allows people and businesses to allocate their funds directly to their favourite park, a specific enhancement project or a BC Parks’ partner – official tax receipts are issued for donations over $25. You can donate to the Park Enhancement Fund here.
