Point Pelee will see $9.9 million in funding for upgrades.

Work includes the underground installation of electrical and phone lines, upgrading sewage treatment to protect the park’s wetland ecosystems and repaving the 7km main road, which runs from the park’s entrance to the visitor centre.

The first phase of the project focuses on archaeological work in the construction areas. Any artifacts found in the area will be protected and studied to help better define the cultural history of the park and region. Caldwell First Nation and Walpole Island First Nation are assisting Point Pelee National Park with concept development and archaeological monitoring.
