Ontario Provincial Parks Currently Closed to COVID-19

A message from the Office of the Director

March 24, 2020

Dear Stakeholder,

Public safety and the health and well-being of our visitors and staff in Ontario’s provincial parks is our top priority.  Ontario Parks continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation carefully.

In response to the Premier’s declaration of emergency on March 17, 2020 and the Chief Medical Officer’s advice to avoid gatherings of over 50 people, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks is closing all provincial parks from March 19, 2020 to April 30, 2020.  We understand that this may impact your current operations or agreements with the ministry.

If you require entry into the park or have any questions regarding your current agreement, please contact Park Superintendent John Fisher by emailing john.fisher@ontario.ca or by calling (705) 429-2516.

We will keep you informed when we plan to return to regular park operations.  In the meantime, I would encourage you to regularly check the Ontario Parks website for updates.

Visit Ontario’s website to learn more about how the province continues to protect Ontarians from COVID-19.

Sincerely,

Jason Travers, Director
