With campgrounds in provincial and national parks preparing to open over the May long weekend, Parks Canada is reinforcing its message about where campers can use recreational cannabis. Usage at both provincial and national parks is restricted to rented campsites only. That’s because, under federal laws, occupied campsites are considered temporary dwellings. Smoking or vaping won’t be allowed in common areas like beaches or walking trails or inside any roofed accommodation – such as an oTENTik tent — within the park.
