Banff National Park salutes spirit of resilience

The timely re-opening of the Trans-Canada Highway paved the way for unrestricted access from Calgary all the way through Banff National Park. The highway experienced severe damage at multiple points and only through the tremendous collaborative effort of the Government of Canada, the Province of Alberta, Parks Canada, the Towns of Banff and Canmore, Canadian-Pacific, and countless unsung heroes and volunteers, could a re-opening have been made possible one week after the unprecedented flooding.

“Our hearts remain heavy for those who suffered during this very challenging time,” said Julie Canning, President & CEO of Banff Lake Louise Tourism. “The communities of Banff and Lake Louise extend their gratitude for the unshakeable resilience of our fellow Albertans. We want everyone to know that summer is a go here in the park, and Mother Nature is ready to give a gentle hug back.”
