Ontario Parks Thanks Students

This past Friday, forty students were recognized by Ontario Parks Partners and Staff for their work in our provincial parks system.

The Ontario Parks Partners Bursary Awards was established in 2000 by several corporate partners who wanted to recognize students who excel in their jobs with Ontario Parks. Peers, the visiting public and/or the student’s supervisor may nominate a student for the bursary. Students must demonstrate high levels of customer service, employee initiative, leadership and dedication in their job.

The $500.00 educational bursary presented to each of these 40 students was donated from Ontario Parks’ Partners. These bursaries help the students with their post secondary education and to pursue their career goals. Many of these students choose to remain in the public service.

On behalf of Ontario Parks, Friends Associations and corporate Partners, we would like to congratulate these outstanding employees.
