Protecting Parks with your purchase
Only a small portion of Ontario Parks’ budget comes from provincial taxes. Most operational funding comes from day-use and camping fees, rentals, partnerships, donations, and of course, the store.
Your purchases help to make nature more accessible to Ontarians and to protect it for future generations.
More specifically, your purchases impact:
- Turtle protection
- Education in-parks and online through our Discovery Program
- Trail and recreation maintenance
- The protection of unique ecosystems, biodiversity, and significant elements of Ontario’s natural and cultural heritage
