New regulations for cannabis usage came into effect in October, 2018. To let visitors know what’s allowed and not allowed when visiting a Parks Canada location, it was important to have a single page that outlined the different rules across the country and within some municipalities.
The web strategy took into consideration that some locations required additional content or had additional municipal complexities. A short URL was established to use on printed signage posted at parks and sites.
