Percy Puffin Passport Program

Percy the Puffin is Back
for the Summer!

Our pal Percy is back for another summer full of adventure while travelling across our beautiful province and he wants to tell you all about his Puffin Passport Program!


Every July and August, Percy Puffin spends his days travelling from coast to coast across Newfoundland and Labrador. He visits all our beautiful Parks Canada National Historic Sites and Heritage Shops — and this summer is no exception! Percy packed his bags and is ready to take advantage of each adventure that comes his way from Signal Hill, to Red Bay!

You too can join Percy's fun! From July 1st to August 31st, 2019, you will have the chance to win a FREE 4" Plush Puffin of your own! Visit a participating Heritage Shop, pick up a passport and earn 6 stamps at any of our 10 locations and/or by completing bonus activities (details of bonus activities are listed on your Puffin Passport).
