Just in time for your Canada Day long weekend, however sadly I have some somber news. The flood damage in the K-Country region is still significant, and at the point of writing this, the roads are closed.
The safest bet is to continually follow the Alberta Parks website (below) or follow them on twitter, as they give you updates regularly. Most other Provincial Parks in the Rockies are a safe bet; Although if you have a trip in mind keep following the park site for any changes.
The current situation with Banff and Canmore are still ongoing, however slow access is beginning to be allowed East of the towns. The speed limit has been reduced to 60Km as road works are underway on the highway to repair the damages from the floods. Please keep in mind that bicyclist are not going to be allowed on the highway between Banff and Canmore at this time (Being enforced by the RCMP).
Hope everyone can still enjoy their weekend, and those affected can rebound quickly.
