Licence Plate Program
In partnership with ICBC, BC Parks offers motorists in British Columbia the choice of three specialty licence plate designs. The designs depict B.C.’s spectacular parks and protected areas. Choose from an elusive white Kermode bear, the snow-capped Purcell Mountains, or beautiful Porteau Cove overlooking Howe Sound.
Specialty plates are available at Autoplan brokers across B.C. A BC Parks plate costs $50 to purchase, and $40 to renew each year. Net proceeds from sales, and all proceeds from renewals, are invested into provincial parks through the Park Enhancement Fund (PEF). This special account is separate from the B.C. government's annual budget for BC Parks. It was created in 2008, and is governed by the Special Accounts Appropriation and Control Act.
In March 2023, the BC Parks Licence Plate Program reached a milestone with the sale of 400,000 specialty plates. These funds support projects related to:
- Indigenous reconciliation
- marine recreation
- fire-based ecosystem and land management
- engagement, education, and inclusion
- the BC Parks Student Ranger Program
Thank you so much for your support!
