Parks management

Ontario's Parks and Conservation Reserves are currently managed for a range of objectives, attempting to balance the importance of environmental protection with recreational, commercial and economic interests. As a result, very little distinguishes protected areas from the surrounding landscape, especially in southern Ontario. Most activities occurring outside the park are also permitted inside the park. Level of protection varies from zone-to-zone, and park-to-park, depending on the individual zone manager and park superintendent, and decisions regarding permitted activities in protected areas are often politically influenced - based on demographics as opposed to providing the greater level of protection and public benefit.

In addition, years of budget cutbacks has forced Ontario Parks to squeeze as much financial revenue from the province parks system as possible, resulting in exclusive corporate contracts with Pepsi and Coleman, expanding recreational vehicle camping and sport hunting.
