Update! June 14 2017 – We’ve reached $30,700!
WE DID IT! YOU PROVIDED GENUINELY SUBSTANTIAL SUPPORT AND CLOSED THE GAP BEFORE JUNE 30 2017! Thank you to all those wilderness enthusiasts and paddlers who have helped us achieve our goal!!
The fundraising deadline by the end of June is coming soon, and we have impressively reached beyond this matching target.
The impact of your support will be doubled towards the preservation of Quetico Park and the important youth focused education and research programs that the Foundation supports.
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.
It’s not too late you can still make a donation to help the Quetico Foundation further address our goals.
Thank you for your support.

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.
of the Giving Season is December 1st ! Giving Tuesday is a day when charities, corporations and individuals join together to share commitment, celebrate activities that support charities and non profit organizations, rally for their favourite causes, and give something back.
What a great opportunity for us to ‘give back’ to our supporters – that’s you!
First, we want to give a huge THANK YOU for enabling us to deliver the research and education programs in Quetico Park that we do – helping us to add value to wilderness protection in Ontario!
Second, we want to give you a view into the impact that your dollars have in Quetico Park and protection of its wilderness:
“The Quetico Foundation is a strong voice for Quetico, Ontario’s oldest Wilderness Park. And the Foundation goes beyond being a voice and supports Quetico on the ground through its important science and education based programs such as the John B. Ridley Research Library, the Artist in Residence Program, the Ridley Wilderness Youth Program, and the Summer Student Research Program. The Foundation’s ongoing support for research and monitoring contributes greatly towards our capacity to monitor and maintain the Ecological Integrity of Quetico Provincial Park.”
Trevor Gibb, Superintendent, Quetico Park
