May Long Weekend Rapidly approaching Crown Land Camping Prohibited

May Long Weekend Rapidly approaching Crown Land Camping Prohibited

NORTHERN, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  April 17, 2021  (LSN)  In 2021 the Victoria Day holiday is on Monday, May 24.Recreational camping is prohibited on public land, including Crown land until further notice. This is to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus

Under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Actyou cannot:

  • camp for recreational purposes on public (Crown) land administered by Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry under the Public Lands Act
  • occupy tents or other camping structures, such as trailers, recreational vehicles and watercraft equipped for overnight accommodation

The prohibition will remain in place until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation and re-evaluate if further actions are required.

This prohibition of recreational camping does not affect:

  • the exercising of Aboriginal or treaty rights
  • temporary outdoor accommodations necessary for the operation of essential services and businesses such as forestry operations
  • using public land for day use activities, like exercise, consistent with the stay-at-home order
  • where written authorization (for example leases or land use permits) has been issued by the ministry to occupy public lands.

From the Toronto Sun:

LOCKDOWN LOWDOWN: Broad-based, Low-Risk Restrictions, Mobility Data - are they working?

Health experts have said outdoor recreational activities are among the safest ways people can enjoy themselves amid the pandemic as the risk of transmission is much lower than in indoor settings.
