Do you have your 2019 canoe raffle ticket yet? If not, there’s still time – and you don’t want to miss out on a chance to win this beautiful prize. This “functional work of art” was built during a two-week public program at the park under the guidance of Chuck Commanda, Algonquin First Nation. Proceeds from ticket sales will support future Indigenous programming at the park. Your chance to win (and help the Friends reach their goal) is Oct. 14. Tickets available at the park store or by calling the park (Courtney) at 613-267-5060 x 222.
