QUÉBEC CITY FORTIFICATIONS • CTC CANADA'S 18 WORLD HERITAGE SITES In 1972, the United Nations Educational, Scientifi c and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) established, and continues to update, a published list of cultural and natural heritage properties around the world considered to be of outstanding universal value to humanity. The goal is to encourage the preservation of the identifi ed properties both at a local and international level. Entry and service fees are charged at most national parks and national historic sites, where the revenues are kept to support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future—and in a legacy for future generations. For Canada's 150 th throughout 2017, admission will be free for all Canadian national parks, national historic sites, national marine conservation areas operated by Parks Canada and lockage at Parks Canada historic canals and water- ways.
