    Mine arrived in the mail yesterday. It took a while to get here, so if you want one, apply now.

    Ours took six weeks. They send two passes, which is something that I evidently missed. I applied for both Annie and myself, so we have four. Since there is no identifying info on them I'll give them away at our next club get together.

    Makes me wonder why the Parks people are going to all the expense of mailing the cards out. Why not just handout the cards when people first enter a park? I guess mailing them out allows them to have an idea about how many people will be using the parks... maybe.

    Thank you for sharing. Planning 2 trips to Eastern Canada this spring and fall and this will give me a good reason to visit some parks. Cheers

    When you add to cart you can order what you need.
    I placed 2 in my cart and that's what I received.

    Got mine...put it in take bag for when I take road trips.

    Since what I received is designed to be hung from a car/truck mirror, how do you display it properly on the bike?

    I guess I'll put mine in the clear plastic map window of my tank bag.

    I have kept mine on in a clear pouch that is on the arm of my riding jacket but not everyone has that. However Parks Canada will simply ask you for your Pass if they don't see it right away and they have never bothered a motorcycle while parked anytime I have visited which is quite often. Remember your riding buddies are free too so they won't have a pass and rely on yours as well.

    I really like that Canada does this and wish the US did the same.
    We did not have any problem last summer when our bikes were parked with one pass, but just to be safe, I asked for 2 free passes

    If you don't have a tank bag with a map window you could carry some tape and stick it to the inside of your windshield.

    Sounds like my tank bag map window is the best place show the pass.

    I do keep it in a zip lock bag to keep it from getting wet and being ruined.

    Glad to know it does not need to stay on the bike while camping.
