  • Question: Can I spread the ashes of a loved one in provincial parks?
  • Answer:

    Ontario Parks recognizes that the practice of scattering cremated remains is an important part of the religious beliefs of many families. Anyone who wishes to scatter the cremated remains of a loved one can do so in Ontario’s provincial parks on both land and in water.

    Who do I contact?

    It is recommended that you contact the Park Superintendent in advance to arrange a suitable, accessible location within the park. Provincial parks that have a designated site are:

    As a reminder, all day-use visitors entering an Ontario provincial park must purchase a permit which allows the vehicle and its occupants to be in the park between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.

    What do I need to know?

    • The location where you scattered ashes may not be accessible in the future
    • Natural vegetation (i.e. plants, trees) or natural objects in the park should not be cut, planted or removed
    • Plastic flowers, written notes or physical structures should not remain at the site
    • If necessary, as part of the ceremony, only a small handful of organic material such as leaves and flowers should be scattered
    • Offerings such as coins, clothing or jewellery should not be placed in waterways or left at the site
    • To minimize your environmental impact please stay on designated trails and roadways
    • Respect other park visitors and choose a site away from public swimming areas, docks and boat launches
    • Please recycle plastic bags and wrappers
    • All fruit should be eaten or placed in the garbage

    Environmental Responsibility

    Ontario’s provincial parks are dedicated to the people of Ontario and to visitors, for their inspiration, spiritual, education, health and recreational enjoyment – with the intention that these areas be managed to protect provincially significant natural and cultural features and preserved for future generations.

    Restrictions

    The Funeral Burial and Cremation Services Act prohibits the interment (burial) of human remains, including urns (containing ashes) except in a registered and operating cemetery.
