New Look for PEI National Park Entrance Permits. Parks Canada has introduced a new look for the PEI National Park entrance permits this year. Seasonal and 7-day entrance passes now include space to print two license plate numbers on the front of the permit. Parks Canada entrance permits are non-transferable, meaning they are intended to be used by the permit holder (signatory) and family. Having a space for specific license plate numbers on the permit ensure an even playing field for all users of the park and reduce the likelihood of transferred passes. If you have questions about the new look of our passes, contact us at 902- 566-7050 or drop us a line at For more information about Prince Edward Island National Park, please visit our website, call us at 902-672-6350, or send us an email at
