COVID-19 Update — OFAH calls for Ontario to re-open outdoor recreation
Last week, Ontario Premier Doug Ford released a framework for reopening the province following COVID-19. While fishing and hunting seasons remained open this spring, access was severely reduced in some areas because of closures due to the pandemic.
Following the release of the framework, the OFAH sent a letter to the Premier to request that access to the outdoors, including boat launches, provincial parks, and Crown land camping be re-opened as soon as possible during the initial stages of this plan.
As we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, outdoor activities like fishing and hunting can help to jumpstart the economy and provide many social, physical and mental health benefits for the people of Ontario.
