NCC lands include urban parks, parkways, recreational paths, Gatineau Park, the Greenbelt and more. To use NCC land, a permit is often needed.

Events permits

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
  • Parades
  • Fundraisers
  • 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.
