Point Pelee National Park will reopen on January 16th, 2021, resuming its current hours of 7:00 am to sunset daily.

Parks Canada and Caldwell First Nation have made a joint decision to end the deer reduction activity in the park earlier than planned, aligning with the intent of recent provincial measures introduced to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The deer reduction operation is carried out in partnership with Caldwell First Nation and forms part of a larger, ongoing initiative to improve the health of the forest and savannah ecosystems at Point Pelee National Park, including planting native Carolinian species and removing invasive plants.

Parks Canada is following the advice of public health experts and encourages all visitors to respect current provincial restrictions.
