Canada Day is coming up and one way to celebrate is getting out there to enjoy Canadian nature. And now, the government of Ontario is helping us do just that! Cause they’ve just announced admission to Ontario Parks will be completely free. Plus, they’re extending free access to fishing in the province.

So let’s start by talking about those parks. Ontario’s got 340 provincial parks and 295 conservation reserves. So there are plenty of spots to choose from. Normally, there’s a small fee to enter an Ontario Park, but on July 1st, it’ll be completely free. But make sure you plan ahead! Cause the parks will be limiting capacity in support of social distancing. So you’ll wanna get there early to ensure you nab a spot.

On top of free entry to the park, fishing rules are changing thanks to Canada Day bliss. The annual Free Fishing Week usually takes place in early July. But this year it’s being extended by an extra week. So from July 4th to July 19th family fishing is happening for free, without the need to purchase a licence.

So if you weren’t planning on spending Canada Day in the great outdoors, maybe this’ll change your mind. See you at the park!
