Not quite. The offer started Nov 25 on the website... and crashed it. But the passes became available only on January 1. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/par...-1.2752894

This was tweeted by the Prime Minister's office today. Last year, if you bought the pass (which hangs from your car mirror), you got 2017 included. Nothing is emailed as you mentioned before you edited your response. This is valid any time through December 31, not just on special free days like the passes to US parks.

fyi, you can get a pass at the gate so there really is no need to order them.

Don't mess with the wikipost. I originally posted this in hot deals. Someone else reposted in freebies and the frontpage editors merged mine into freebies. This deal could very well be merged into mine because freebies have a different set of rules but I let it go.

Someone linked my original thread for the sake of discussion and comments that could be useful.
