NCC lands include urban parks, parkways, recreational paths, Gatineau Park, the Greenbelt and more. To use NCC land, a permit is often needed.
An event permit allows you to hold a one-time event on NCC land. Examples of events include
- Music festivals
- Sporting events
- Work or community picnics with tents or other structures
- Films requiring infrastructure.
An event permit is not needed for picnics without tents and structures. You can, however, reserve a picnic area at Vincent Massey Park.
