Let’s Keep this Special Place Special

This special place is a jewel of northeastern Ontario. It’s a perfect snapshot of what the region was before intensive forestry, mining, and urbanization.

As a part of the Chiniguchi Waterway, this area is visited by naturalists, school groups, academics, adventurers, and environmentalists to see and learn from the towering trees, quartzite cliffs, and wildlife calling this place home. 

We Need Your Help

Please send this letter to David Piccini, Minister of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks ([email protected]) and Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources, Forestry and Indigenous Affairs ([email protected]). Ask them to do their jobs and protect Wolf Lake and Ontario's wilderness. 

If you have been to Wolf Lake, we encourage you to reach out to your local representatives and share personal stories in addition to this petition.
