Donate to the Quetico Foundation and help keep our canoe on course – in ensuring the preservation of our 150 year old Canadian wilderness! Before you throw your canoe on the car and escape into the backcountry for the summer, dig deep and paddle us to our $25,000 destination!
Join our race! Every stroke you take will be matched dollar for dollar by a most generous family Foundation – IF and ONLY IF we sprint to our destination by June 30, 2017!
HELP US CLOSE THE GAP by JUNE 30, 2017!
Double the impact of your support of the preservation of Quetico Park and the important youth focused education and research programs that the Foundation supports.
Thank you for your support.
Quetico Foundation’s 2016 Meeting & Celebration of the Season – Thanking and awarding Peter Dalglish
At Quetico Foundation’s 2016 Meeting & Celebration of the Season in December, we took the opportunity to thank Peter Dalglish for his significant contribution to the Foundation over the past 25 years – and presented him with a Quetico Foundation commemorative paddle made by XY Paddles. Thank you Peter!
Thursday November 3rd from 5:00-10:00 pm, The Quetico Foundation is once again partnering with the Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund (TSCBF) for the annual Art Show to be held at the Storys Building, 11 Duncan Street near the corner of King and Duncan!
This year’s show ‘Shapes and Sizes’ will be profiling approximately 150 works inspired by the province’s great outdoor spaces, landscapes, cities and towns, including featured artists –Steve McDonald, David Marshak, and Elzbieta Krawecka.
Our art collection from our Artists in Residence will be in the show!
Please come out, have fun, buy and see great art and get together with colleagues and friends with food, drink, appetizers and a great evening that is widely appreciated, helps young minds and young leaders, helps protection and appreciation of our wilderness and helps gives young people the chance to go to camp and experience Ontario’s great outdoors.
This summer, throughout May, June, July and August, Quetico Foundation’s Student Summer Research Program team and our biology intern team studied invasive species, monitored songbirds, studied blister-resistant white pines, as well as ecosystem and aquatic ecology monitoring! This year marks the 20th anniversary of our Student Summer Research Program and the 10th anniversary of the Biology Intern program!
The students had a great time, discovered and studied quite a few species and had the chance to study and explore a diversity of habitats in Quetico’s wilderness.

Thirty canoeists attended Quetico Foundation’s Canoe Day. We canoed along the Big Creek valley through the Carolinian forest with its verdant trillium carpet and flowering trees, past rolling landscapes with streams and wetlands that feed the headwaters of the Big Creek National Wildlife Area.
Many genuine thanks to each canoeist and everyone for your support of the Quetico Foundation’s Student Summer Research Program on our paddle along Big Creek, Saturday May 7, 2016. As well as for good, wholesome and fun conversations and great canoeing among a great group.
