Camping In Ontario represents the interests of Ontario’s Privately Owned campgrounds in a variety of ways, including marketing the camping and RVing lifestyle in Ontario, advocating for members at all levels of government, and facilitating programs and services that support their businesses. 

Social & Cultural Impacts

In addition to tangible and measurable economic benefits, a variety of social impacts are a natural result of the outdoor hospitality industry:

  • Celebrating Canada and its stunning natural landscapes by facilitating accommodation options in a variety of locations from coast to coast.

  • Camping provides travel and leisure options to a broad range of socioeconomic levels, giving more Canadians the ability to travel, enjoy nature, and make memories that last a lifetime.

  • Recent expansion of camping products and options in the Outdoor Hospitality industry has made the camping and RVing lifestyle more accessible and desirable to diverse demographics.

  • As demonstrated during the pandemic, exposure to the outdoors has a significant positive impact on the mental wellbeing of Canadians.
