Park Wardens in Algonquin Park

To ensure our visitors enjoy their visit to Algonquin, Park Wardens are on patrol to:

  • provide information
  • ensure the safety of Park visitors
  • protect Algonquin Park and its resources
  • enforce Park rules and regulations

Within a Provincial Park, a Park Warden has all the power and authority of an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer.

Park Wardens enforce the following legislation:

  • Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006
  • Highway Traffic Act
  • Liquor Licence Act
  • Trespass to Property Act
  • Off-road Vehicles Act
  • Forest Fire Prevention Act
  • Motorized Snow Vehicles Act
