On behalf of the NOTO Board and Staff we wish to extend our wishes for safety and protection for those tourism operators across the province that are being affected by the rampant forest fires in Ontario.
We are hearing reports of evacuations and smoke covered skies in several parts of the province. According to MNR, 20 new fires were reported yesterday bringing the total number of fires burning in the province to 112. We sincerely hope that our industry friends, their guests and businesses are kept safe from any devastation.

We encourage all of you to stay informed about the fire situation.
We would also like to take a moment to thank the countless MNR employees and volunteer fire fighters who are working tirelessly to put out these fires.
If there is anything that we can do to help any of you, please let us know. For now, please know that we are all thinking of you. Take good care,Laurie MarcilNOTO Member Services Managerlaurie@noto.netPh. 705-472-5552 x24
