Today’s news says camping is opening this Friday. Can anyone cite a source that specifically says crown land ect is open . Or is this just family campgrounds?

Here is the official press release. Although it does not specifically refer to Crown Land, they must have simply overlooked it...

"Overnight camping at campgrounds and campsites, including Ontario Parks, and short-term rentals;"

I can't imagine they deem Ontario Parks any less risky than Crown Land camping, as far as spreading COVID.

As for the strict letter of the law, it seems like you may still be breaking the rules... The actual act that prohibits it appears to still be in effect, and will be until the 16th of June. I am not proficient enough in law to know whether this act was automatically nullified by the lifting of the Emergency orders, or if it stands separately.

Personally, the opening of Provincial Parks Friday is enough for me. I'm hitting Phillip Edward Island on Sunday.

Looks like the act has been updated to expire today, June 11.

Happy legal, safe tripping on Crown Land everyone!
