2020 Park Permits

NEW for Spring 2020!  Purchase and print your vehicle permits online.

For the first time, your permits can be purchased and printed from home! The Manitoba government has launched a new, online service for the sale of park vehicle permits, along with fishing and hunting licences.

Purchase and print your vehicle permit at home before travelling to the Whiteshell.
Here’s how:

  1. Go online to manitobaelicensing.ca
  2. Create a customer profile
  3. Select the desired park vehicle permit type (annual, daily or casual)
  4. Enter your vehicle licence plate number
  5. Checkout as you would with any other online purchase
  6. A digital copy of the permit will be available to print on your elicensing account page
  7. Print out your permit and display it in the windshield of your vehicle.

Permits must show the matching vehicle licence plate number and be clearly displayed in the windshield of the vehicle.  They are valid in all provincial parks and must be displayed year-round.

Park passes are no longer available at gas stations, retailers and offices in the Whiteshell. More information on the new online service can be found at manitobaelicensing.ca.


2020 Entrance Fees

Base permit fees remain unchanged from last year.  An additional $4.50 administration fee has been added to all permits to provide the new elicensing service. All permits are non-refundable.

Vehicle Permits
Annual $44.50   (valid until April 30, 2021)
Casual $16.50   (valid for three consecutive days)
Daily $9.50   (valid until midnight on the date of purchase)

Bus Permits (vehicles that transport more than 10 persons)
Annual $114.50   (valid until April 30, 2021)
Casual $39.50   (valid for three consecutive days)
Daily  $29.50   (valid until midnight on the date of purchase)

If you plan to visit any provincial parks more than three times a year, we recommend purchasing an annual permit.  Annual permits may have up to two licence plates attached to them, so that one permit may be printed twice and used for two vehicles.  Daily and casual permits are valid for only one licence plate number.
