The Quetico Foundation has made its official response to the Preliminary Quetico Park Management Plan, which was finally released for public comment on September 30th 2013.
The Park Management Plan is the key document that sets the tone and direction for all aspects of the management of the Park for decades to come. Our comments are under consideration and the preparation of the final Plan is in process. We will post the final Plan here when released.

Our new-look new-feel website is almost ready to be launched! We are very excited. Watch this space!


Welcome to The Quetico Foundation

The Quetico Foundation is a registered charity which is dedicated to the protection of wilderness class parks, and particularly Quetico Park, Ontario, Canada. The Foundation was formed as part of the joint American-Canadian effort to protect the unique wilderness areas in the borderlands, west of Lake Superior.

Since its founding in 1954, The Quetico Foundation has been dedicated to the protection of wilderness, with particular focus on Quetico Wilderness Provincial Park. Established in 1913, Quetico is one of Ontario’s oldest parks, and its second largest wilderness class park. A paddling haven, it hugs the northern edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota, forming a unique international natural landscape.
