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.
